You and Your Health


Supporting you to look after minor ailments

Our role is to look after all aspects of your health, either by providing that care ourselves and arranging specialist care where needed. We also have a role to play in supporting you and building your confidence to look after your own health, where appropriate.

Treating minor conditions yourself, avoiding the need to attend a GP practice, is also known as self-care. It also encompasses self-management of long-term conditions and prevention of ill health. You can also request advice from your local pharmacist, who can advise and give you over the counter medication. 

You will find links below to several animations, developed by the local NHS, that give you good advice about looking after common minor ailments yourself, without needing an appointment at the practice:

If you are suffering with any of these ailments. Please contact your local pharmacist. 

People with long term conditions are generally advised to still contact the practice for advice if you develop a minor illness. This doesn’t need to be with a GP. There are a wide range of health professionals in practices nowadays and at this practice we have physician associates, clinical pharmacists, MSK specialist & social prescriber who are well qualified to advise you and are often specialists in managing long term conditions. When you contact the practice we will be able to advise who will be best to see.
