Local GPs Support for Carers

GP Carers’ Month Challenge

The Danebury Avenue Surgery in SW15 is the winner of our challenge to be the practice to refer the most Carers to the Wandsworth Carers’ Centre during June.

GP Dr Neil Browning from the practice who is a regular referrer to the Centre shares their reasons why;

“I refer to Wandsworth Carers Centre because the broad based support services at the Centre complement the support to Carers that I can provide at the practice. It’s quick and easy to refer and because the Carers’ Centre supports all adult Carers in Wandsworth I don’t have to remember lots of different places to refer Carers to.”

Thank you and well done Danebury!

 

Carers Week Displays

We are also pleased to report that a number of practices put up displays to tell Carers about Carers Week activities and to encourage Carers to identify themselves to the practice.

Practice Manager Bev Atkins from the Greyswood Practice in SW16 said, “At Greyswood Practice we are renewing our efforts to identify Carers who are registered with us so that we can support them better. We were delighted to be able to help to publicise all the great events the Carers’ Centre put on for Carers Week 2013. We have now set up a permanent Carers board and made other changes to help us to identify more Carers” .

Thanks for your support!
