With One You Surrey and the local NHS, we're offering a series of health check sessions for carers. Find out more here about appointments for our face to face sessions, and phone health checks.
Carers’ health checks face-to-face
When you’re a carer, it’s easy to neglect your own needs – including your health and wellbeing. But it’s so important to look after YOU.
Of course, it can be tricky to find the time. That’s why we’ve paired up with One You Surrey and the local NHS, to offer certain carers a free, 30-minute face-to face appointment with a professional health care practitioner, to discuss your own health and wellbeing needs.
These advisors understand carers’ challenges, and with a whole half hour, that’s plenty of time for you to discuss any issues troubling you. The health practitioner will run through a number of things with you, like your diet, weight, how much activity you do, as well as your mental wellbeing.
You can raise any concerns, and it will be a chance for you to reflect on all areas of how you are feeling. At the end of the appointment, the practitioner will signpost you to relevant local services and sources of support.
The face-to-face appointments are open to you if you are:
- Aged between 40 and 74 years old
- Not had a health check in the last five years or being supported by a GP for ongoing physical health issues
- Not on medication for a long term health issues
e.g. stroke, diabetes, high blood pressure, kidney disease
Phone checks for all carers
We are also offering health checks by phone. If you’d find it easier to do it by phone, or you’re a carer who doesn’t fall into the categories above, get in touch for an appointment. These are available to all carers (any age, etc): call us on 0303 040 1234, or email [email protected].
Note, there will be face to face appointments at locations across Surrey in January, February and March.
It’s time to look after you. Please get in touch today to book your appointment
