Are you an unpaid carer?

Do you do any of the following for a loved one, parent, family member, neighbour or friend?


Pay Bills



Emotional support

Washing and dressing


Organise medicines and medical visits


If so, then you are a carer and are entitled to support to help you in your caring role. This can include 1 to 1 advice, support groups with other carers, training, and help with costs.

Here at Glenside Country Practice we are committed to making sure carers are given the chance to obtain any support they feel they need, be it simply information and advice to emotional support and benefits.

If you would like to know more, the Practice has 2 Carer Champions, 1 at each of our sites – Michelle at Corby Glen and Dawn at Castle Bytham - who can give you further information, or you can call the Lincolnshire Carers Service at the County Council Customer Service Centre (CSC) on:

01522 782224 –   Adult Carers 18+

01522 553275 –   Young Carers

Both numbers are available Monday to Friday 8am – 6pm

Carers FIRST is an organisation which offers emotional and practical support to carers, and after your initial contact with CSC you can be referred onto them for further assistance.

It is important to know that you, as a carer, can have the support you need.

Glenside Country Practice Feedback

"This doctors practice whatever doctor you see, have time to listen and explain. Reminds me of days gone by when the GP had time for their patience and treated them like human beings, rather than being on a conveyor belt. This is the best move I made from my last practice where you had to wait a minimum of two weeks before you could get an appointment. A practice where the receptionists wanted to know why you wanted to see the doctor. At the Glenside practice all the staff from receptionist, nurses and doctors make you feel part of the family. A wonderful practice to belong to".  - NHS Choices Website 09.04.13


"Everyone here is lovely - actually, there are two surgeries and the doctors and other staff are fantastic, really knowledgeable and caring, I can honestly recommend them all whole heartedly :-)" - NHS Choices Website 22.04.13


"Since the doctor and their team took over this practice the surgeries are being made smart and efficient. The doctor and their team of doctors and nurses manage to achieve that rare blend of professionalism,care and kindness. You might sometimes have to wait a little while but that is because each patient is treated as an individual and listened to. You almost always come out in a more positive frame of mind than when you went in. Nobody wishes to be ill but I sometimes wish I could visit more often! I have received excellent care for my asthma and for sensitive rashes which were not thought important elsewhere. I can wholeheartedly recommend this practice for any one lucky enough to move into this lovely area. ( And a postscript for those who fear needles and blood tests the nurses have got this down to a butterfly touch-you will be in good hands)" - NHS Choices Website 02.06.14
