Supporting Carers in General Practice

The Supporting Carers in General Practice e-learning programme has been developed for primary care professionals, to help them to support people who care for others. It has been developed by the Royal College of General Practitioners, in partnership with the Princess Royal Trust for Carers and with support from The Children's Society. The programme contains six e-learning sessions:

  1. Supporting those who provide care for other people

  2. Identifying carers

  3. Organising your practice to support carers

  4. Supporting young carers

  5. Support for older people and their carers

  6. Supporting the carers of people with challenging problems

Click on the How to access page for details on how to access the e-learning.


Please spend three minutes looking at this message from Clare Gerada, previous Chairman of the Royal College of GPs, on five simple ways GPs can make a difference for carers.
