Let your GP know you are a carer

It’s good to let your GP Practice know you are a carer, they can help with things like: making sure you can get your flu vaccine every year and support you in looking after your own health needs.

Many practices will also try their best to help you with things like accessible parking or appointments times to suit you and the person you look after – this does vary from practice to practice but don’t be afraid to ask!

Want to get involved?

You can get involved with Carers Oxfordshire, if you have some time to spare then volunteering as a befriender might be of interest.
