April News - Carer's Surgeries
Our carer support surgeries will be re-starting this April.
Who are the appointments for?
Family or friend carers. A carer is a family member or close friend looking after someone (adult or child) who has a disability, long term health condition or drug/alcohol addiction. The carer may or may not live with the person they care for.
What will happen at the appointment?
The carer will be able to talk about their caring role, find out about help and support that is available to them and complete a carer’s assessment which may result in a carers payment.
When and how long are the appointments?
An appointment will last about 45 minutes. They are available at; Ridingleaze on Thursday afternoon in the fourth week of the month and Bradgate on Friday morning in the fourth week of the month
Who runs them?
A carers support officer from Carers Support Centre which is a voluntary sector organisation funded by Bristol City council to support carers.
Book an appointment at the reception desk.
There has been a significant rise in the number of measles cases in this and other areas of the UK. Some people have been very ill. The under 45s are the most affected group. Anyone who has not had 2 measles (MMR) vaccines is at risk. Please be reassured, the measles vaccine is safe. For more information please see our immunisation pages.
If you or your child have not had both vaccines please contact the surgery. It's never too late to be vaccinated!
