We are pleased to say we have been awarded the platinum carers award at the surgery.
The scheme, funded by Wiltshire Council and the NHS Wiltshire Clinical Commissioning Group aims to raise awareness of carers’ issues in GP practices and provide a system of awards to recognise their support to carers.
To achieve an award, practices needed to meet more than a dozen requirements that included maintaining an up-to-date carer’s register, have a carer’s lead, provide flexible appointments for carers and hold a minimum of one carer’s clinic per year. The clinics ran in partnership with the CSW Community Connector team.
The practice team worked very hard to achieve this recognition so it was nice to be rewarded.
