Self-care Information

On average, people in the UK experience nearly four symptoms every fortnight, 80% of which can be managed by self-care. One in five GP visits are for common conditions, such as backache, headache or cough.

The ‘Self Care Forum’ provides fact sheets for common ailments. They explain how to help yourself, when you should see a GP, and additional information on healthy living. They also have tips for living with long-term conditions.
