Find our frequently requested resources for GPs working with Carers in Surrey here, from details about the GP Carers Prescription run in conjunction with the NHS and SILC, to local support resources, documents and forms. There's a quick link to the GP Carers' Prescription including Carer Breaks Service below.
There is also a video below with advice about the forthcoming GDPR and changes for data protection.
When you use the GP Carers Breaks Dashboard to refer carers for a break you can also refer carers to other carers’ services across the county as required; the website includes definitions of these services . This maybe helpful if your practice has exhausted its GP Carer Breaks funding and will enable you to continue to support your carers by referring them to other appropriate services.
