Carers, you deserve care too

At Adderley Green Surgery we understand that caring for another person can be physically and emotionally demanding. If you’re busy caring for a loved one, we’re here to help make it easier for you to manage your own healthcare needs, by giving you access to the services and the emotional support you need to stay happy and healthy while caring for somebody else. As well as convenient digital access to our clinicians, we are starting to offer all of our patients who are carers a free annual health check with our Health & Wellbeing Coaches.

Carer's Health Check

As a carer for someone else you may not always prioritise your own healthcare needs. We are currently piloting free annual health checks for our patients who are carers, with the view to extend this to all our carers in the near future. The health check will be a holistic assessment of your health and wellbeing.

We are using a new digital booking service, Hero Health, to help with the booking of a carers review or health check which allows you to book in directly with our health coach without needing to call the surgery. By clicking this link: Hero Health - Carers Health Checks Appointments you can book an appointment with one of our Health Coaches at Adderley Green Surgery.

You can also book in by calling the surgery on 01782 312838.

 

Are you a carer or do you have a carer?

A carer is anyone who looks after a family member, partner or friend who is unable to cope on their own. This care might be to support with mental or physical health, frailty, a disability or addiction. Carers can be children or adults, and the care they give is unpaid.

If you would like to let us know you are a carer email our Health Coaches  at meirpcn.coach@nhs.net or by completing this form: Register a carer
