Surrey Carer Partnership developed a referral tool to help professionals who come into contact with carers to refer them to the support they need. It is a secure online tool that connects carers with services such as a carers assessment, GP registration, Surrey Young Carers support, flexible home-based care, and help with learning and work.
GPs can register their practice, or refer a patient to the GP Carer Breaks Scheme or for another service listen on the Carers Prescription.
It includes a checklist for practitioners, and a tool for assessing the carers’ wellbeing.
This example was originally featured in the 'Six principles for people and communities: Putting them into practice' published by the People and Communities Board, with support from National Voices.
