GP Carers' Break Payment: In Surrey we have a GP Carers' Breaks Scheme which allows GPs to prescribe carers a break worth up to £300, based on a clinical assessment of your health. The money can be used to purchase alternative care to allow you to have a break or to pay for goods or services that will help you to relax and improve your health and well-being. If your GP agrees that you would benefit from a break, they will apply for the grant on your behalf and soon after you will be contacted by Surrey Independent Living Council, who administer the grant, to discuss your needs. In order to qualify for a GP Carers' Break carers must be registered as a carer. Action for Carers Information
