Monday 11th June will mark the first day of Carers Week 2018, bringing an opportunity for everyone to raise awareness of the different services on offer in Warwickshire to help make carers’ lives a little bit easier. Carers Week is about building communities which support carers to look after their loved ones whilst recognising that they are individuals with health and wellbeing needs of their own.
There will be a staffed carers stand at Budbrooke Medical Centre on Tuesday 12th June from 2 pm - 4 pm, providing information advice and guidance to all carers.
A carer is anyone who regularly provides unpaid help to someone who could not cope without them. Unfortunately, many people do not realise that they are carers, while many who do realise are unaware that there is support available for them.
Warwickshire County Council, in partnership with Warwickshire Carer Wellbeing Service, will promote Carers Week locally, with themed news and activities taking place throughout the week. View schedule of local events Please make a pledge of how you can support carers in your local community or how you as a carer will look after your health and wellbeing https://www.carersweek.org/

Budbrooke Medical Centre is a Research Active Practice
The practice team are delighted to announce that Budbrooke Medical Centre is a research active practice working with the National Institute for Health Research Clinical Research Network (NIHR-CRN).
We work in close collaboration with a team of GPs, research nurses and facilitators based in Warwick Medical School. If a patient is eligible to join a research study running in our practice, a GP or other healthcare professional will provide written information. Taking part in a research study is voluntary and can be beneficial to patients who participate in them.
Examples of research projects include:
- investigating timing of taking blood pressure medication
- investigating respiratory infections
- management of heart failure
- how to increase physical activity
- ways to help people stop smoking
- the use of self-monitoring of blood pressure
Our GP Research Lead within the practice is Dr White
