Health Advice and Self Care

Many thanks for looking here first. Many illnesses and minor injuries can be dealt with by 'self care' or advice from a pharmacist giving our team more time to deal with more serious issues. This page gives advice and guidance to patients on how to manage their long-term conditions, how to deal with minor injury and illness that doesn't require treatment from a clinician and give patients advice on several topics.

We also offer 'NHS healthchecks' to adults aged 40-74 without a pre-existing condition to check your circulatory and vascular health, calculate your risk of heart disease and stroke and give you advice on lowering this risk.
