Action for Carers Surrey
Enabling carers to have a voice and realise a life outside caring

Registering with your GP as a carer

GP_with_patient.jpgACS works hard to bring carers’ issues to the attention of GPs and other health professionals in Surrey. It is important that your GP knows that you are a carer so that they are aware of the extra pressures you are under and can offer you appropriate help, information or entitlements. To register with your GP as a carer, ask your surgery for a registration form, or download the form here, which you should complete and return to them.

You may be entitled to a GP carer’s break payment if your GP thinks your health is at risk from the pressures of your caring role.
