Support for Self Care

We actively help those who wish to care for themselves with advice on staying healthy, management of longer term illnesses, as well as signposting to other health services if needed.


We actively support patients and carers to stay healthy and well by providing advice on the prevention and treatment of minor illness and long-term conditions. This help may include healthy lifestyle information or support (for example giving up smoking), advise on how to manage illness and also direction on the appropriate use of a non-prescription medicine. The pharmacy team may also signpost patients to other health and social care providers, when appropriate.


This service will help patients/carers who wish to take an active part in their health to be as healthy as possible.
