GP Practices

Carers Support Centre has a dedicated team which supports GP practices in Bristol and South Gloucestershire to identify, inform and support all carers, including carers of people with dementia.

We can:

  • Help you to identify and support carers.
  • Conduct an audit of your current services for carers with you.
  • Provide best practice resources, templates and bespoke materials to improve your services for carers.
  • Provide carer awareness training for your staff.
  • Recruit a GP Link Volunteer for your practice to help support carers.
  • Carry out Carers Assessments for patients who are carers, which can result in carers getting a break from caring.
  • Provide information materials for carers including leaflets, posters, information for your practice leaflet, website or digital display screen.
