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

Patient telephoned the surgery to say she was overwelmed at how kindly Dr Vine had been. She praised him and wanted to pass on her thanks to him. She was grateful that he personally took time to ring her and in her words, made her very happy.

Mrs B, June 2018

I want to pass on many, many thanks and praise to Dr Webster for her diagnosis and quick action.  The lump has been confirmed as cancer and I am being admitted next week for treatment.  I cannot thank her enough and will be forever grateful to her.

Mr P, February 2018

Thanks to everyone who has helped me through some quite tough times and been so kind and supportive.  Best wishes to you all.

Mrs R, January 2018

Praise from Mr M Gaukroger, Consultant in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery:"I am delighted to see that X has now got complete cover of the scalp defect, even to the extend that there is now some curly hair growth in the area.  I think this is a tribute to the nursing care that X has received over the past few months and please pass on my thanks to your staff.April 2018
