Tell Us What You Think

Your views are very important to us and in some cases this is often the only way we get to know if there is anything we need to improve.

In short – ’ We can’t fix it if we don’t know it’s broken.’

That said it is always nice to know if we have got something right as well.

 

Are You A Carer?

If you are a carer or are being cared for we need to know so that we can offer you the correct support and / or treatment. To help us maintain a register of carers and those persons being cared for please ask our reception staff for a Registration Form

The word carer does not mean care worker or care staff of any kind who are paid to provide care as part of a contract of employment.

Carers – By carer we mean people who look after a relative or friend who need support because of age, physical or learning disability or illness, including mental illness.

Parent Carer – By parent care we mean a parent who cares for a disabled child. Parents will often see themselves as parents rather than carers, but their child will have additional care needs and may be entitled to additional services.

Young Carers – Young carers are persons under the age of 18 who have caring responsibility for another family member who is either unwell of disabled.

 

Do You Want To Stop Smoking

If you want to stop smoking and need help please talk to your GP, Nurse or Reception Staff who will be able to point you in the right direction as to smoking cessation services available at the surgery.
