Self-Care for life
Are you suffering from cold and flu and need to visit A & E?
Well from the 16th November to the 22nd November is self-care week. Self-Care Week is a yearly campaign to raise awareness about the benefits of self-care and what people can do to take better care of their own health and their family’s health. And this year’s theme is Self-care for life. We are shining a light on how community pharmacies can help with minor ailments and also help with long term illnesses.
