What is self care?Ask at Your Pharmacy First

Self care is about looking after yourself in a healthy way. It can be anything from doing some exercise, managing common conditions (also sometimes called minor ailments) like headaches, coughs & colds and hay fever or living with a long-term health problem, such as asthma or diabetes.

Please see attached leaflet and video for useful guidance on self care:
