Why should my GP surgery know I am a Carer?

All GP surgeries in Cheshire West and Chester record the names of  carers. This information can help us to:

  • Early intervention of carer health problems may lead to faster treatment and improved health outcomes.
  • Timely identification and registration of carers to make it easier to offer health checks and screening , flu jabs, to maintain good physical & mental health.
  • Improving physical health and emotional wellbeing of carers can lead to reduced demands on services and also may lead to saving in a GP’s prescribing budget.
