Info for Carers

Do you look after someone who is ill, frail, disabled or mentally ill?

As a carer, you may be entitled to an annual flu vaccination. Please inform the receptionist or your doctor if you would like us to know that you are a carer.

A great source of information for carers in Scotland can be accessed via Care Information Scotland. Care Information Scotland (CIS) is a phone, webchat and website service providing information about care services for people living in Scotland.

The webpage can be accessed here or via telephone 0800 011 3200 (open 7 days: 8am to 10pm).
