Minor Illness and Injury

Clinical problems and conditions are classed as minor illness when either they can be self treated or are uncomplicated thus not requiring further investigation.

“Minor Illness” is a medical term but this does not mean it is unimportant. We appreciate from a patient’s point of view many such instances will not feel ‘minor’ in any sense. However it is important we try as a practice to support our patients who have complex medical problems and use all the doctors time as appropriately as possible.

If you are unsure you can treat yourself have a look at the self-care advice below talk to your local pharmacy who can give advice on a lot of minor health problems.
