Noticeboard

Buckinghamshire Healthcare Trust (who own the car park at Thame Health Centre) are introducing charges on MONDAY 14TH OCTOBER. The Rycote Practice has negotiated that the first hour will remain free but you will need to pay after this. Please note that this decision had NOT been made by The Rycote Practice and we will receive no parking funds resulting from this decision.


The Rycote Practice will be closed from 1pm on Tuesday 15th October for essential staff training. We apologise in advance for any inconvenience.

Carers

 

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.  A Carer's Agreement 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 complete a Carer's Identification and Referral form and let us know about your caring responsibilities.

Please also look at the following websites, which provide very useful information for carers:
