PPE for carers who do not live with the person they care for
The government has recently announced the roll out of a programme that will see free Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) given to unpaid carers who do not live with the person they care for. The scheme will run until the end of June 2021.
Carers to receive COVID-19 vaccine
Are you a carer living in Knowsley or a carer registered with a Knowsley GP?
As a carer, you play an invaluable role in our communities so itâ€™s important that you are vaccinated as quickly as possible, to not only protect yourself, but also the people you care for.
Does your GP know you are a carer?
Ask your GP practice to identify you as a carer on your medical record.
If you let your GP practice know that you have a caring role you can be identified as a carer on your medical records. This will help the practice to take care of you for example by offering the flu jab annually. Carers who are identified by their GP practice may also be eligible for a COVID vaccination.
