Let your GP know you are a carer

GPs offer free health checks and flu jabs for carers.  Ask at your local surgery for more information.

If your GP knows you are a carer he/she can provide you with the right support.  The surgery may be able to make reasonable adjustments to help you fit in appointments around your caring responsibilities.  Your GP will also be able to look out for early signs that your caring role may be affecting your health.

Carers Trust Heart of England also run clinics at some doctors surgeries throughout the city making it easier for you get further information, advice and support around your caring role.
