Are you a carer?
If you are providing help or support to a friend, neighbour, relative or partner who could not stay at home due to their sickness, age or disability, then you are a carer. The practice offers advice and support to carers - please ask a receptionist. We have a dedicated Carer support worker Jacqui Worsey who can meet with you and provide further information on local help available to you.
If you, or the person you care for is attending on of our clinics, then the nurse or doctor will ask you if you are a carer. If you are not attending one of our clinics, then please let a receptionist know and we will do our best to ensure you receive any help you need.

Carers Support West Sussex
Many carers do not see themselves as such because they see themselves as a parent, spouse or partner, son or daughter, relative, friend or neighbour. 1 in 10 of the population are carers. As a result carers often miss out on services, support, advice and benefits which may be available.
Carers Support West Sussex can help carers from all communities across West Sussex by providing practical information and emotional support. Please follow this link to the Carers Support West Sussex website for more information and details of how to get in touch: carerssupport.org.uk
