From Monday 16 to 22 November 2015, Self Care Week is being celebrated across the NHS. Self Care is all about looking after yourself and staving off poor health, as well as managing conditions which people already have.

What is self care?
Self care is about looking after yourself in a healthy way. It can be anything from brushing your teeth, doing some exercise, managing common conditions (like headaches, colds and flu) or living with a long-term health problem, such as asthma or diabetes.
Self Care Week 2015
Self care for life
A different theme is chosen each year for Self Care Week and this year's theme focuses on Self care for life. This includes helping you better understand how to look after any minor ailments or long-term conditions you may have, and how to prevent ill health by choosing healthy options for good physical and mental wellbeing.
