Self care

Looking after yourself means knowing how to keep fit and healthy, how to deal with medicines appropriately, manage self-treatable conditions and when to seek appropriate clinical help. There’s a lot of information on this site that will help you manage your physical and mental wellbeing, such as how to stop smoking, eat more healthily or sleep better.

Remember you can also get advice from your local pharmacist for lots of health issues, and there's no need for an appointment.
