GP Carer Register Leaflet

As a Carer, it is easy to neglect your own health and wellbeing. Following guidance from Scottish Government many GP practices have set up Carers’ Registers to enable Carers to get extra support:

  • Flexible appointments
  • Double appointments when necessary
  • An annual flu vaccination

If you wish to have your name added to the Carers’ Register, complete this form which is available from your GP practice or from South Lanarkshire Carers Network.
