Self Care

Self care is not self-management; it is much broader and includes everything from daily choices such as dressing in warm clothes and eating healthily, to self-treating minor ailments and injuries, self-management of long term conditions and preventing serious conditions by looking after your general physical health and mental wellbeing.

Visit the NHS Choices website or the Self Care Forum website to find out more.
