St Paul’s and Ashfield Medical Centres were jointly awarded the prestigious title of Most Supporting GP Practice by the Blackpool Carers Centre at their Charity Ball on Saturday 1st February. Dr Scott and Dr Johnson received the award on behalf of the practice teams at the event, which was also attended by a number of practice staff and nurses. The award was in recognition of the work undertaken by the practices during the last year to identify carers and offer referral to Blackpool Carers Centre. As a consequence many more carers have taken advantage of the help and support offered by the Carers’ Centre. We very much appreciate the support from those patients who responded to our carers’ questionnaire and we hope to build on this success by improving our support for carers even further in the coming months.
