GP Surgeries 

The team behind Universal Services for Carers know how hard it is to access medical appointments – both at your local GP surgery, as well as at the hospital. That is why you will be able to find us in your local GP surgery, offering a variety of support, including:

• Working with your local GP surgery to develop better strategies for identifying and supporting carers when accessing medical appointments (such as ensuring reception know you are a carer when booking and offering the option of booking double appointments for yourself and the person you care for);
• Being present within GP surgeries for face-to-face advice and information sessions;
• Ensuring care based literature is readily available and up to date.

*Owing to the current pandemic we are unable to physically be in GP surgeries at the moment, however, our Community Engagement Worker is hard at work behind the scenes ensuring we are ready and waiting to support carers once government guidelines allow us to do so.

Talking Points

We will also be available at Talking Points across Derby City so that you can gain information and advice in the most accessible location for you.
