A carer is someone, of any age, who provides unpaid support to family or friends who could not manage without this help. This could be caring for a relative, partner or friend who is ill, frail, disabled or has mental health or substance misuse problems. Anyone can become a carer, in most cases becoming a carer is not out of choice, it just happens.
It is important that carers are supported to enable them to continue to provide care for a relative or friend.
There is lots of information about the support available to carers in Pembrokeshire and links to essential services on the Hywel Dda Health Board Carers Information section of the website. Please take a look.
If you are a patient of the surgery and a carer, you should register with us so that we know. This can help as we may be able to offer support and help accessing appointments etc. We can also offer you a referral to the local carer information services who can help and support you further should you wish it. To register, either call in at either surgery and request a Carer Registration Form, or download and print a copy of the registration form below and hand it in at your surgery.
