SELF CARE

Help your NHS by being Self Care Aware

Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) are working with GP Practices across Cambridgeshire to help patients and reduce the demand on GP time and NHS budgets through a policy of supporting and encouraging patients to be more aware of how they can help themselves manage minor conditions.

This approach is called Self Care for Self-limiting Conditions.

The CCG describes it as: "Empowering people with the confidence and information to look after themselves when they can, and visit the GP when they need to, gives people greater control of their own health and encourages healthy behaviours that help prevent ill health in the long-term. In many cases people can take care of their minor ailments, reducing the number of GP consultations and enabling GPs to focus on caring for higher risk patients, such as those with comorbidities, the very young and elderly, managing long-term conditions and providing new services.”     The full policy document can be found here.

 

The Self Care Forum defines self care as “The actions that individuals take for themselves, on behalf of and with others in order to develop, protect, maintain and improve their health, wellbeing or wellness.”

Self Care Forum offers useful advice, as well as fact sheets for some common conditions.
