Carers

This Practice is currently working in partnership with Carers in Hertfordshire to offer support to patients of any age who have caring responsibilities for someone who is ill, frail, disabled or mentally ill.

This includes parents of children with learning or physical disabilities.
We recognise that caring for someone is an important and valuable role in the community. We know that it can be a 24 hour a day job can be very demanding and isolating and we believe that carers should receive appropriate support by way of access to:

  • accurate information, for example, benefits and grants
  • practical help, for example, equipment and taking a break
  • a listening ear when things get too much.

Carers in Hertfordshire can be contacted on 01992 586969 should you wish your name to be added to their mailing or visit their website.

Carers registered at the surgery are entitled to:

  • Flexible appointments
  • Seasonal Flu Vaccination
  • Carer’s Health Check

If you are a carer registered with The Maltings Surgery or the person you care for is registered at the surgery and you need advice, please telephone the surgery and ask to speak to Maria Merlo.
