Your GP (General Practitioner) and primary care team can provide you with support, advice and information.

A helpful starting point to getting the support you need as a carer is to let your GP know. There are also many services that can support you to look after your own health including occupational therapists, physiotherapists, continence advisers and dieticians which they can direct you to.

Your local GP practice provides a wide range of family health services, including:

  • advice on health problems
  • prescriptions for medicines
  • examinations and treatment
  • referrals to other health services and social services
  • vaccinations.

All of the GP practices in the city are members of NHS Southampton City Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG). This means they have signed up to our constitution which sets out how the CCG will be run and how decisions will be delegated.
