Other Support

There is an abundance of information on the NHS website about about carers and caring. Locally there are also a number of networks and charities available for carers, as well as a wealth of support available directly from The Allan Practice.

Carer's Bucks have created a Carer's Emergency Plan to help give you a little piece of mind should an emergency happen – download it below:
