The COVID pandemic has had a significant effect on the lives of Carers, but we know that there are many more people in our local area who provide support to a family member of friend without realising that they are actually unpaid Carers.
The Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) has included unpaid carers in Group 6 of the vaccination priority list but we, and many other carer organisations, would like to see unpaid carers being vaccinated at the same time as the person they care for. A key way of being identified as an unpaid carer is being registered as such with your GP practice. If you aren’t already registered with your GP, we can work with you and your surgery to try to put this in place for you.
Please call us on 01642 488977 for more information on how we can help you.
