Carer’s support

Our PPG has been working alongside Carers First to set up a support network for our patients who are Carer’s. They are delighted to say that this has been a success so far and they have now set up a group.
Open to all Carers, anyone over 18 who is supporting an adult family member, close friend or even unpaid. There will be a support group at The Zinc Art Centre, Great Stoney, High Street, CM5 0AD. This will be the second Wednesday of every month 13:30-15:30.
If you would like to attend, please register your interest with Carers First either via www.carersfirst.org.uk or by calling 03003031555
