“ The CCG in Conjunction with the Local Pharmaceutical Committee and Herefordshire Carers Support have developed a resource called “A Carers Guide to Managing Medicines”
This leaflet has been produced specifically for family carers and has lots of information about how your community pharmacist can help you in your caring role as well as contact details for Herefordshire Carers Support, the local organisation that offers a range of free support services to family carers.
Many people do not regard themselves as carers since the term “carer” is often associated with a health professional or a paid carer but if you are supporting a family member or friend who couldn’t manage without your support, then you are a family carer and should make contact with Herefordshire Carers Support to make sure you are accessing all the support that you are entitled to.
Herefordshire Carers Support Service can be contacted at:
Herefordshire Carers Support

Telephone: 01432 356068
Website address: www.herefordshirecarerssupport.org
The information in the leaflet is intended help you to understand and make the most of the services offered by your local pharmacist.”
