Carer Support Wiltshire are looking for new members to join their GP Accreditation panel, which administers awards to GP practices in Wiltshire based on their commitment to support unpaid carers.

The Wiltshire Investors in Carers GP Accreditation Scheme encourages GP practices to identify and support carers and give them recognition for their commitment.

The scheme has been running for 10 years and has been hugely successful in ensuring that GP practices are aware of how they can best support unpaid carers registered with them.

There are 3 levels of award – Silver, Gold or Gold Plus and Platinum. Practices work towards a set of criteria and submit a checklist and evidence to support this in mid-June.

Submissions are considered by an accreditation panel comprising carers, staff from Carer Support Wiltshire, Wiltshire Council and BANES, Swindon and Wiltshire CCGs.

CSW are keen to extend their carer membership of the panel. The panel is next meeting on Wednesday 29 June, 1pm-4pm at the Independent Living Centre in Semington, with an option to join remotely.

If you would like more details about joining the panel, please contact Helen Gough at | 01380 819 608.
