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.
