Self-care

Before booking a GP or CWIC team appointment please check your symptoms on NHS Inform to see if your health issue is one which can be managed through self-care advice and medications available from your pharmacy.

A large number of health conditions resolve by themselves after a short time, or can be treated with self-care advice and simple over-the-counter medications available from your local pharmacy. Many of these medications can be accessed free-of-charge via the Pharmacy First scheme.

This helps us to keep appointments for people in your community, who really need one.
