Carers

 

Kingsway Medical Centre puts Carers at the forefront of their practice at all times of the year.

 

Jill Adams one of our Reception Team, works with the carers within our Practice to organise :

 

  • Health checks
  • Flu vaccinations
  • Carers Drop-In Clinic with Stockton Carers Hub
  • Signposting to various agencies as required.

  

The Drop In Clinic is held the first Friday of each month between 10.00am - 12.00 noon and all carers are welcome to attend.

 

 

Please get in touch if you feel that you would benefit from this service.

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.

  • Caring for a parent

    Watch this video on: caring for a parent at home

  • 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?
