Important: Carers

Do you provide unpaid care to somebody else? We are here to help.

If your GP (General Practitioner) knows that you are a carer, they can provide you with really useful support, advice and information. For example, they can refer you to local support networks in your area or help you understand what you're entitled to as a carer - such as free flu vaccinations.

It’s important to tell them about your caring responsibilities so that they can offer support.

A more user-friendly NHS App has arrived!

An updated version of the NHS App will be released from December 11th. It’s simpler and clearer, making it easier to access online health services.
