It is important to have a good open relationship with your doctor.Â Tell your GP that you are in a caring role.Â GP practices have systems in place to record this information on aÂ Carers Register.Â This information is beneficial to both you and the GP practice, e.g. a GP practice might use its Carers Register to invite carers for a flu vaccination or a health check.
At the same time carers know the people they care for better than anyone else.Â This knowledge can be extremely useful for doctors and other health professionals in planning patient care, and also in identifying problems that may require intervention.
