Are You A Carer?

DO YOU LOOK AFTER SOMEONE WHO IS ILL, FRAIL, DISABLED OR MENTALLY ILL?

We are interested in identifying carers, especially those people who may be caring without help or support. We know that carers are often “hidden” looking after a family member or helping a friend or neighbour with day to day tasks and may not see themselves as a carer.

Caring for someone is an important and valuable role in the community, which is often a 24-hour job that can be very demanding and isolating for the carer, Carers should receive appropriate support by way of access to accurate information on a range of topics such as entitlement to benefits and respite care and not least, a listening ear when things get too much.

As a Carer, you are also entitled to have your needs assessed by Adult Care Services. A Carer’s Assessment is a chance to talk about your needs as a carer and the possible ways help could be given. It also looks at the needs of the person you care for. There is no charge for an assessment.

If you are a carer, please let reception know and collect an “involve” Carers leaflet.

Digital Health

Ieso Digital Health provides free, one-to-one therapy on behalf of the NHS in West Kent for people with common mental health problems such as depression and anxiety. Qualified therapists deliver live cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) online through written (typed) conversation in a secure virtual therapy room. Your therapist will work closely with you to help you understand how your thoughts and beliefs affect your feelings and behaviours, and teach you new coping skills to handle different problems or situations.

Online CBT follows the same format as traditional face-to-face therapy and is proven to be just as effective. You can attend from anywhere you feel most comfortable and at a time to fit around your schedule, including evening and weekends. Appointments are usually 30 or 60 minutes long and you can access your session from any device that connects to the internet.

There are no waits to treatment so you can typically start therapy within a week of registering for the service.

Eligibility: Online CBT is available for people aged 18 and over who are registered with a West Kent GP.

You can refer yourself for treatment without having to see your GP:

Health Data Collection and Health Observatory.

The staff at this practice record information about you and your health so that you can receive the right care and treatment. We need to record this information, together with the details of the care you receive, so that it is available each time we see you.

The information recorded about you may also be used for reasons other than your personal care, for example, to help to protect the health of the general public, to plan for the future, to train staff and to carry out medical and other health research or studies.

Thus, we are involved in a health observatory based on anonymised patient information. The reasonable security measures and anonymisation processes are in place to comply with the relevant data protection regulations. If you would like to opt out of this data collection scheme, please let your doctor know and your records will not be collected for use for this observatory. This will not affect your care in any way.

If anything to do with the observatory or derivate research would require that you provide additional information about yourself, you will be contacted by your GP to see if you are willing to take part; you will not be identified in any published results.

You have right of access to your health records. If at any time you would like to know more; or have any concerns about how we use your information, please ask reception for more details.
