Supporting carers with online access to medical records for the person they care for

    (23 Dec 2022)

    A carer is someone who provides support to family or friends who could not manage without this help. This could be caring for a relative, a partner or friend who may be suffering from illness, frailty, disability, mental health or substance misuse issues. It includes young people who may be caring at home. We are looking at ways to promote and support carers in accessing our services, particularly online services. If you care for somebody registered at this practice and you would like to know more information about online services, please click on this link.
