Are you a carer? Is the person that helps you in your daily activities a carer?
Please find out what you are entitled to, and the help that is available to you, by accessing the link below to the NHS Choices website.
In addition, The North Yorkshire County Council website provides very useful information relating to services and support in our practice area. This information is available by accessing the link below.
If you are a carer, you might like to consider applying for a Carer's emergency card:
The carer's emergency card identifies you as a carer if you have an accident or cannot identify yourself. It is the size of a credit card.
The scheme offers 24-hour emergency cover, so if anything happens to you will you are out or you are suddenly taken ill at home we will get in touch with your identified emergency contact(s) or take appropriate action.
