The Pledge asks that Derbyshire GPs:

  • Invite carers for the annual flu vaccination
  • Improve the way that Carers are identified, supported and signposted
  • Nominate a Carers Champion who will be a point of contact for identifying and promoting carer support in the practice.

In return we will:

  • available within the practice

  • Support practices with setting up carers events and services
  • Present each practice with a Carers Pledge certificate and resources
