Carers Federation are working in partnership with NHS Rushcliffe Clinical Commissioning Group.
We work closely with all 12 medical practice groups in Rushcliffe Borough to ensure that carers receive support and good access to services through their local surgery.
Each practice has a member of staff who is the Carers Champion and takes responsibility for ensuring that other members of staff are aware of carers’ needs and the services available to them locally. That person also provides access to information and support for their carers.

The Rushcliffe Carers and Self Care Service exists primarily to:
- Raise awareness of carers and their needs across primary and community care
- Embed a consideration of carers as part of usual working practices
- Signpost carers to services that will offer support to optimise their social, emotional, mental and physical wellbeing
- Raise awareness and embed consideration of self care across primary and community care as a strategy for empowering patients about their own conditions to increase their independence and reduce their reliance on carers.
If you or a carer you know have any specific information or communication needs and require information about our services in an alternative format please let us know.
