Funded by Provide, our GP Liaison Support Officer for Mid-Essex is Sue Wright.

Sue’s role is to support GP practices to develop their processes and systems to:

  • Identify Carers
  • Enable the GP practices to signpost Carers to support and suitable services
  • Identify with GP’s how they can proactively support Carers with managing their healthcare needs

Sue also makes sure that GP practices are provided with the information which encourages Carers to self-identify and self-refer to Action for Family Carers.

Sue is liaising with all the GP practices within Mid Essex to achieve the above and each surgery will be offered Carer awareness training.

By using the NHS Quality Markers, each practice is enabled to self-assess what they are doing well and encourage suggestions of how they can make adjustments to improve Carer support within their practice.

Sue is passionate about helping GP practices to support unpaid Carers and with her background, is extremely well placed to achieve this. Sue is a qualified nurse with experience in both adult and paediatric nursing in acute, primary care, community and the private sector. She was also the Named Nurse for Safeguarding Children.

Sue has personal experience of being an unpaid family Carer, taking on the responsibility of providing care for her father.

Sue can be contacted by email, susan.wright@affc.org.uk, or telephone, 0300 770 80 90.
