Self Care

Self Care is about looking after yourself in a healthy way.  It can be anything from doing some small exercises, managing common illnesses e.g. colds and flu, headaches or living with and understanding your long term condition e.g. Asthma, COPD or Diabetes.

The Pharmacy can be a big help in promoting self care and this can be your first port of call as opposed to coming to see the Doctor.  There are also a number of excellent websites with a wealth of information on:

www.nhs.uk

www.selfcareforum.org

www.treatyourselfbetter.co.uk

www.patient.info

You can also look at the two enclosed links to aid you when seeking advice with common illnesses:
