What support are you getting as an unpaid carer?

Published: 2 December 2022

If you’re an unpaid carer, take part in a survey from your local Healthwatch and share your experiences on the support available through your GP practice.

We know some people are not registered as a carer with their GP practice, and know even for those who are, the level of support received can still vary.

By taking part in your local survey, you will help better support GP practices identify unpaid carers and provide the support you are entitled to and deserve.
