Looking after someone?
Every year 2 million people become carers, so the first thing to remember is you are not alone!
Caring for someone can be very difficult and many people find that they need extra help with the care they provide.
If you are registered at this practice and are a Carer for someone, please inform our reception team.

Rotherham Carers Forum
Rotherham Carers’ Forum is an independent group which enables informal and family carers (unpaid), to have voice in shaping services in Rotherham. We aim to work together as a strategic partner with Local Authority, Health Service, Voluntary and Communities organisation, charities and groups as an equal partner, participating and influencing local decision making on services for carers and their families.
Carers Forum meets on the 1st Wednesday of each month between 12 noon - 2.00 pm.
Carers Forum regularly invites different speakers from other agencies to speak on issues which are relevant to carers. If you like to join the group then come along and meet Rotherham Carers’ Forum at:
Carers Corner, R.A.I.N Building, Room 41 Eastwood Lane, Rotherham. S65 1EQ
