What is self care?

Self care doesn’t mean you get less help from your doctor. The healthcare team is still there to support you. However, it is not always necessary to make a GP appointment if you do not feel well. Check out the information listed on the right to help you to decide if you need to make an appointment.

Long-term conditions

If you have a long-term condition, there are extra things you may need to consider, such as making changes to your diet, different types of exercise or different types of medication you may need to take.

A healthy lifestyle

Self care also means staying active by doing things that are important to you, such as gardening, seeing friends and family, going on holiday, or continuing to work, if possible. It involves looking at what you can do and want to do, rather than what you can’t do.

Living a healthy lifestyle is an important part of self care for everyone. There's lots of useful healthy living information in the Live Well section of NHS Choices website. If you're living with a long-term condition, Your health, your way has advice on self care and taking control of your health.
