Self Care

Self care means looking after yourself in a healthy way, whether it’s brushing your teeth, taking medicine when you have a cold, or doing some exercise.

Self-care is the best choice to treat very minor illnesses and injuries. A range of common winter illness and injuries can be treated at home simply by combining a well-stocked medicine cabinet with plenty of rest.

It is important to live well and to try and prevent ill health. On this website there are links to staying healthy. Church Street Practice wants to support you looking after your health and there are often many things you can do to improve your health as well as treating minor ailments without needing to see us. However if you are concerned or want further advice our GPs and Nurses are here to support you.
