Thank you Pemberton Surgery for support given to a Carer that has been struggling to attend your practice due to his Caring role and his own health issues.
The problem was dealt with promptly and the patient in question is pleased someone listened and carried out what they said they would do.
Keep up the good work.

Show Carers We Care
This year to mark Carers Week (June 12-18th) we are asking anyone that works or lives in the Wigan Borough if they could take part in the ‘Show Carers We Care’ initiative and help build Carer Friendly Communities by actively doing something for unpaid carers.
How you can get involved?
It’s up to you, you can let your imagination run away with you and do something adventurous or something small scale it doesn’t matter we just want to show carers that people in the Wigan Borough appreciate the role that carers do and rightly deserve and let them know … that the Wigan Borough community cares.
You don't have to wait until June before making a start you can get involved beforehand and the Carers Centre will showcase everyones effort in Carers Week.
