PKAVS - Carer's Hub

PKAVS (Perth and Kinross Association of Voluntary Services) is based in the Gateway Centre, North Methven Street, Perth.  They provide a range of services to carers in Perth and Kinross.  They can help with financial matters, respite care, home care services, support for young carers or just provide someone to chat to.  They have recently relaunched their website and have tried to bring together all the information which carer's might need on one site.  The website can be found at

PKAVS runs regular events for carers, such as the Kinross Hub which is on the 1st Monday of the month in St Pauls' Church Hall.  Information on all their events and activities can be found on their website.

Compliments and Complaints

We are always keen to hear from patients about the services that we provide.  It is gratifying to hear when things go well, but we accept that sometimes we could improve.  We therefore encourage comments or suggestions which will enable us to identify problems and correct them.  Complaints, concerns or comments can be discussed with any clinician or member of staff at the Health Centre or they can be sent in writing to the practice manager.  Further information is available in the Policies section of the website.
