New Carers

Our friendly Patient Information Centre (PIC) is open 9am - 12pm Monday - Friday.

They are able to offer advice and give out an information pack to support carers in our area.

Please inform a member of the Reception Team or Care Coordinator Team if you are a new carer, or have not registered as a carer with us. Carers are entitled to a free seasonal flu vaccine each year, to help protect themselves and those that they care for.
