The Chipping Surgery is Supporting Carers

If you look after someone you may be entitled to a range of support from both local services and the practice. As a GP Practice we have a role in supporting carers’ health and we work closely with carers support agencies and local voluntary sector organisations to identify and support carers and their families who visit the practice.
A patient needs to give consent to allow their carer to have access to their personal details and / or copies of correspondence. Download the consent form here

Positive Caring Programme - Learning, Development and Support for Gloucestershire's Carers

Free local sessions giving you the opportunity to meet with others in similar circumstances to gain and share knowledge, information and support to help you in your caring role.

Am I eligible to attend?

The Positive Caring Programme is open to all adult carers aged 18 and over. Any person who provides substantial care or support for a family member, friend or child with an additional need is welcome to attend. You do not need to be the main carer, nor live with the person for whom you are providing support.
For young carers, we provide a tailored version called Caring Counts in partnership with Gloucestershire Young Carers.What topics does the programme cover?

    • health and well-being

    • emotions and stress

    • practicalities of caring

    • finance and resources

    • how to access services and support

    • how we juggle caring with other demands
