Carers

If you care for, or help someone with an illness or disability, whether this is a partner, friend, other relation or even a neighbour then you are a CARER.

Here at Old Bridge Surgery, we pride ourselves on providing the best possible support for our patients who care for somebody else as well as those individuals in their care.

NHS Choices provide a wealth of information on carers and caring. Below are some links we hope you will find useful:
