Northamptonshire Carers - Open Day at Great Oakley Medical Centre

Northamptonshire Carers are hosting an annual campaign to raise awareness of caring, highlight the challenges unpaid Carers face and recognise the contribution they make to families and communities throughout the UK and the theme for 2024 is 'Putting Carers on the Map'

It is also aimed at helping people who don't think of themselves as having caring responsibilities to identify as Carers and access much-needed support.

The campaign is brought to life by thousands of individuals and organisations who come together to provide support for Carers, run activities, highlight the vital role Carers play in our communities and draw attention to just how important caring is.

Northamptonshire Carers will be based in Great Oakley Medical Centre on Friday 14 June 2024 between 10.00am – 2.00pm, to help and give advice/information to our registered patients who are Carers - please feel free to drop into the surgery on this date to have a chat with one of their team.
