Free help for Carers

You can access free help from Gloucestershire Carers Hub directly; you don’t have to be registered as a Carer at Stoke Road Surgery. We would prefer you to register with us too because this allows us to offer you the our support as well.

Gloucestershire Carers Hub can provide information, guidance and advice as well as some very practical help, such as;

  • Signposting to other services
  • Full Assessments, support planning and review
  • Support groups and hubs
  • Benefits and finance advice
  • Wellbeing payments
  • Befriending and mentoring
  • Professional counselling service
  • Hospital Liaison
  • Carers Emergency Scheme (Level 1 helps with alerting family and friends in an emergency, Level 2 provides emergency assistance by a care worker for up to 48 hours).

If you feel any of these free services would help in any way, please have a look at their website at or call them on 0300 111 9000.

If there is any help or support we can offer from the surgery, please let one of our receptionists know.
