If you help someone with their day to day living please let yourself be known to us and we will register you as a carer. We can then, if you wish, register you with the Carers groups either in Wiltshire or Hampshire. They can  assist you with any problems that may occur in your caring role.

At the Surgery we hold regular Coffee Mornings on a Saturday, which are very well attended and are a fantastic way to share your experiences with other carers and to obtain useful information from our invited guests.

As a carer you will be offered a yearly flu jab. We also hold regular carers health checks so we can help you to stay well, with the opportunity to speak to a Care Worker one-to-one after the appointment with the nurse.

There are many advantages in registering as a carer. For further information please ask to speak to Kim Munro - Carers Lead.


There is a wealth of information on NHS Choices about carers and caring. Below are some links into the site that we hope you will find useful.

  • Telling people

    Caring responsibilities can make it difficult to maintain friendships or develop new ones. Telling your friends you're a carer is important so they understand and can support you.

  • Taking a break

    Caring for someone can be a full-time job, but it's essential that you take time out for yourself too. Read our guide to accessing breaks and respite.

  • Housing and carers

    Do you know your tenancy rights as a carer? Are you aware of all your care at home options? Do you need tips on moving someone around the home?
