Carers Information & Support

Do your look after someone who could not manage without your help? If you provide help and support to a partner, relative, child, friend or neighbour who could not manage without your help due to physical or mental illness, disability, frailty or addiction, then you are one of the thousands of unpaid carers in Bristol. If you are a carer, it is important that you look after your own health as well as the person you care for. 

Here at Beechwood Medical Practice we will do our best to help you carry on caring for as long as you want to. For example carers are a group of people to whom we offer ‘flu’ vaccinations each autumn. We keep a ‘register’ of the carers who are our patients. This enables us to let carers know about support that is available to them, can help us to share information with you about the person you care for and to access appointments. To register as a carer with us, ask for a carers identification form from reception or download here or speak to your doctor / nurse .

You can also access a wide range of information and support from our local carers support group

Carers Assessments

We are pleased to be able to offer appointments here at the practice with Mary Bennett from the Carers Support Centre.  The hour long appointments take place on the last Thursday of each month.  If you are a carer and would like an assessment, please ask reception to book you in.  For more information about the service please see:
