This section of our website is dedicated to carers - anyone, including children and adults who looks after a family member, partner or friend who needs help because of their illness, frailty, disability, a mental health problem or an addiction and cannot cope without their support. The care they give is unpaid.
We want to know if you are a carer so that we provide for your needs as well as those of the person you are caring for. If you are a carer please let us know by completing our carers form or just letting someone at the Surgery know.
Dr Ian Morgan is the practice lead for carers.
Details of local carer services are available on the Newcastle City Council website including their information leaflet for carers. Carers are entitled to an assessment of their needs, details included in the leaflet. We also have a social prescribing service to look at your needs, local preventive services and local community-based support and refer you to these if wanted. Please ask for a referral to this service.
At Newburn Surgery we are committed to supporting carers.
