Noticeboard

Are you an unpaid carer?


Do you do any of the following for a loved one, parent, family member, neighbour or friend?


Transport


Pay Bills


Cleaning


Gardening


Emotional support


Washing and dressing


Shopping


Organise medicines and medical visits


Cooking


If so, then you are a carer and are entitled to support to help you in your caring role. This can include 1 to 1 advice, support groups with other carers, training, and help with costs.


Here at Glenside Country Practice we are committed to making sure carers are given the chance to obtain any support they feel they need, be it simply information and advice to emotional support and benefits.


If you would like to know more, the Practice has 2 Carer Champions, 1 at each of our sites – Michelle at Corby Glen and Dawn at Castle Bytham - who can give you further information, or you can call the Lincolnshire Carers Service at the County Council Customer Service Centre (CSC) on:


01522 782224 –   Adult Carers 18+


01522 553275 –   Young Carers


Both numbers are available Monday to Friday 8am – 6pm


Carers FIRST is an organisation which offers emotional and practical support to carers, and after your initial contact with CSC you can be referred onto them for further assistance.


It is important to know that you, as a carer, can have the support you need.


IF YOU LOOK AFTER SOMEONE, WHO LOOKS AFTER YOU?

Appointments

circled_dayThe doctors may vary on their days of availability at each surgery. They work to a rota ensuring that they go to each surgery on a regular basis. All our clinics are appointments only. Just telephone the surgery or call in to arrange an appointment.

Consulting times at both of our locations are 09:00-11:00 and     15:30-18:00.

Extended hours are offered on Monday evening at Castle Bytham from 18:30 until 19:30 and Thursday evenings at Corby Glen from 18:30 until 19:30.

Please remember an appointment is for one person only; please do not ask for other members of the family to be seen at the same time.

Chaperones

It is your right to have a chaperone present during your consultation. Please inform the clinician prior to any consultation or examination

Practice Nurses

In a number of cases it might be worth considering an appointment with a practice nurse rather than a doctor. Practice nurses are qualified to deal with many ailments and you may be seen more quickly.

Please note you are unable to book practice nurse appointments online. You will need to call the surgery to book.

Cancellations

If you cannot attend an appointment for any reason please inform us as soon as possible in order for us to give the slot to someone else.
