Self care is about how you avoid becoming ill, treat common everyday illnesses and seek help when you need it as well as keeping fit and healthy.
Learning to take care of your own health is a good thing as it puts you in control, improves your quality of life and helps you live more healthily.
For minor short term health problems, patients should access advice and purchase such self-care remedies as they and their family need rather than being prescribed by their GP or other clinicians.
