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.
If you care for a relative, friend or partner who is ill, disabled or frail please let us know. The surgery maintains a carers’ register. Ask at reception for details.
Often carers are unaware of the help/services available from Carers Support Wiltshire (0800 181 4118). You can also access their website which has been developed to represent all the Carers Support Agencies in Wiltshire: http://www.carersinwiltshire.co.uk/
