Carers Direct

Content Supplied by NHS Choices There is a wealth of information on NHS Choices about carers and caring. Below are some links into the site that we hope you will find useful.

  • Caring for a parent

    Watch this video on: caring for a parent at home

  • Telling people

    Caring responsibilities can make it difficult to maintain friendships or develop new ones. Telling your friends you're a carer is important so they understand and can support you.

  • Taking a break

    Caring for someone can be a full-time job, but it's essential that you take time out for yourself too. Read our guide to accessing breaks and respite.

  • Housing and carers

    Do you know your tenancy rights as a carer? Are you aware of all your care at home options? Do you need tips on moving someone around the home?

This Year’s Flu Campaign

We expect to get our flu jabs delivered by mid-September.

We will be providing Saturday morning clinics as usual. The dates are:

Saturday 4th October 8:30 – 12pm

Saturday 18th October  8:30 – 12pm

Book your appointment now!
0161 980 3835.
We are changing our computer system, so please be patient as we are still learning! We may be a bit slower than usual!
We will also be vaccinating anyone with a chronic disease such as diabetes or asthma etc. We will be running clinics during the week as well. It looks like there will be no letters sent out this year about the flu campaign, probably due to cost-cutting at
NHS England.
It takes a couple of weeks to be effective so we would encourage you to have your jab as soon as possible
