You are a carer if you are looking after somebody who is ill, frail, disabled or mentally ill. Mawsley Surgery is trying to trace all patients who are carers. This will mean that carers are known to the surgery and steps can subsequently be taken to support you. There may be times when you need information, advice or some extra help. When you are a carer, it is often difficult to have a proper break because someone depends on you. You can become tired and your health may suffer. Please pick up a Carers information leaflet from our Reception counter or speak to a member of the team who will be able to help.
