The Eric Liddell Centre in association with VOCAL (Voices of Carers Across Lothian) will be hosting a range of health and benefits surgeries for carers throughout the month of August.
The surgeries being hosted at the premises of the care charity and community hub are to help ensure that carers are reliably informed of what benefits they are entitled to. The health surgeries offer an opportunity to speak about their own health and wellbeing with an NHS nurse. The surgeries are all free to attend.
John MacMillan, Chief Executive of the Eric Liddell Centre, said: “We are committed to ensure that unpaid carers within our communities are provided with appropriate support and are proud to be working alongside VOCAL to deliver these advice surgeries.”
The health surgery takes place on Tuesday 6th August. The benefits surgeries take place on the 13th and 17th August. Please call Martha (0131 357 1271) or Sally (0131 357 1270) direct for an appointment time or to discuss options.
