Register As A Carer

Your Results

The importance of carers is recognised by the government policy document 'carer at the heart of the 21st Century families and communities'. General Practice is identified as an important part of the way the NHS helps carers.

A carer spends a significant proportion of their life providing unpaid support to family or friends. This could be caring for a relative, partner or friend who is ill, frail, disabled or has mental health or substance misuse problems.

If you care for a friend or relative there could be more help available for you.  Register with the Practice using our secure online form and we will do our best to ensure you are given all the support you need.

Carer Registration Information

There are many people who care for others on a voluntary basis. This is usually in our families or close friends. The Surgery wants to be able to support you. To do this we need your consent to record your contact details in the record of the person for whom you are caring. This information is confidential and will not be passed onto others. Filling in the form is entirely voluntary; you are under no obligation to do so. We might use the information to post information leaflets to you, or to contact you in an emergency if we are concerned about the person you care for. If your contact details change or you are no longer the carer, please inform us.

Nottinghamshire County Teaching Primary Care Trust (NCTPCT) has a department that specifically supports carers.

If you wish to register with the surgery as a carer, please fill in our secure form. It is important that both the carer and the person receiving care sign the form. This is to give permission to the Practice to store this information the Practice computer.

To allow us to keep your details as a patient carer, we need your consent to comply with the Data Protection Act. The information you give us will be entered into the computer records of the patient concerned.
