Self-care is about looking after yourself in a healthy way.
It can be anything from brushing your teeth, continuing to take care of personal appearance, doing some exercise, managing common conditions (like headaches, colds and flu) or living with a long-term health problem, such as asthma or diabetes.
As a Self-Care Aware practice, we are here to help you feel able to look after your own health when it is right for you. So when you have a consultation, the doctors, nurses and healthcare assistants in this practice will talk to you about what you can do to help maintain and improve your health.
As well as charities, there are a number of health and social services into which you can self-refer without the need of a formal referral from your doctor. You can find links below.
Don’t forget your local pharmacist can assist with medication queries, offer advice regarding minor ailments and sexual health and provide emergency contraception.
