Carers - Advice and Support


Are You a Carer or do you look after someone that wouldn't necessarily be able to manage without your support?

If you are please let us know - we may be able to help you.

The surgery offers annual health checks for carers and can signpost you to additional support if needed - we use an 'prescription' based service to access fast and efficient help for carers locally.


PHONE or FACE TO FACE appointments (for new carers):

SUZIE ZAND is our "Carers Lead" and can help provide advice for anyone who may care for another. She offers pre-bookable advice clinics (phone or face to face) for anyone wishing to discuss being a carer and referral for support that is available through Action for Carers.

To book please contact reception or e-mail:

There is a wealth of information on about carers and caring.

Below are some links into the site that we hope you will find useful.

Carers' assessment

If you look after someone you have the right to ask for a carer's assessment by completing Surrey  County  Council's online carers' support needs assessment at any time. A carer's assessment looks at the impact your caring responsibilities have on your life and what social care support you might be eligible for.

If you are eligible for support from us your needs could be met by a range of options, including paid services and services provided by the voluntary sector. If you are not eligible we will give you information and advice on where you can get the help you want.

  • Caring as a parent

  • Telling people

    Caring responsibilities can make it difficult to maintain friendships or develop new ones. Telling your friends you're a carer is important so they understand and can support you.

  • Taking a break

    Caring for someone can be a full-time job, but it's essential that you take time out for yourself too. Read our guide to accessing breaks and respite.

  • Housing and carers

    Do you know your tenancy rights as a carer? Are you aware of all your care at home options? Do you need tips on moving someone around the home?
