FOR CARERS, PLEASE READ BELOW Information for GPs and Healthcare Professionals
Take the time to check in on your own health...
When caring for someone else, it is easy to overlook your own health needs. Rushing around most of the time means it can be all too easy to forget to look at ways of keeping ourselves healthy and well. Camden Carers Service Health Team is here to help and regularly holds health and lifestyle consultations (HLCs) which give carers the space and time to focus on their own health and access any services which can help them maintain their health and well being.
If a particular need is identified, we can refer you into specialist services such as our in-house counselling service or one to one appointments with a nutrition practitioner.
There is also a Healthy Living Support Group to help you stay on track with your health goals and form a support network amongst other carers.
In addition, there are a number of activities offered by Camden Carers Service, which can help you remain fit and manage your stress levels:
We can also make referrals to free services in Camden for weight management and exercise on referral and for psychological services..
Please contact the health team on [email protected] / 0207 428 8950 to book an appointment.
And don't forget - the next time you visit your GP ask to be registered as a carer!
