If you’re a Carer who helps and supports someone who can’t manage on their own,

we want to ensure YOU get all the support YOU need.

 

We are trying to identify & support as many Carers as we can.

 

Particularly those people who may be looking after a member of their family or helping a friend or neighbour with day to day tasks, don’t really regard themselves as a Carer and are undertaking this vital activity without help or support.

 

If you are caring for someone, we really would like you to let us know, so that we can ensure you receive all the support and information we can give, on topics such as benefit entitlement, access to respite care or maybe simply being there to provide a kindly ear when things get too much.

 

At the bottom of this page, you will also find a list of additional contact points for carers to use. 

 

If you are a Carer,

please ask our Receptionist

for a Carer’s Identification and Referral Form.

 

Or alternatively you can visit the Essex County Council website at www.essex.gov.uk or their Living Well Essex page on www.livingwellessex.org/looking-after-someone/being-a-carer for help and advice on all your carers needs

 

  

Patient Consent

 

In addition to the Carer's Identification and Referral Form, we also have a consent form for patients who are being cared for to complete. This form does not necessarily apply to all cases, but to those patients that give consent for their carer to have access to their medical records either in part or in full.

 

If you are a patient that would like to allow your Carer access to your records, please ask our Receptionist for an Agreement by a Patient to allow a Carer to have access to their Personal Details Form.

- 

Please complete this form and

then hand it to our Receptionist.

 

Alternatively, please click here to download & print a copy of the form.
