Carers - Do you look after someone?

Carers Gold Award

We are delighted to say that Michelle Sanders (Carers lead) has gained the “Gold Award” for the GP Carers Accreditation submission she sent in for this year – well done.  A new initiative this year was the young person’s get-together held at the Rivo lounge which was a huge success as well as a coffee morning held at the surgery.
