The GP practice is usually the first place that carers have contact with the NHS. Staff there are well placed to recognise that someone is, or is about to become, a carer. For this reason, at your surgery you will find a lot of information aimed at patients who are carers so that they can be identified and better supported by the GP and other members of the health team.
