Understanding Self Care for Life

This year’s Self Care Week takes place from November 14-20. The event is run by the Self Care Forum and aims to help you become more knowledgeable about health and lifestyle options that will impact positively on your physical and mental wellbeing.

This year's theme is 'self care for life'.

Self care means knowing how to keep fit and healthy, how to deal with medicines appropriately, manage self-treatable conditions and when to seek appropriate clinical help.

If you have a long-term condition, self care is about understanding that condition and how to live with it.

Find out more about self-care and how to get the right care for your needs.
