What is Self Care?


Self Care is about helping you take control of your health and wellbeing.

Whilst we all need help from healthcare services from time to time, we are the real experts when it comes to our own health and wellbeing.

Whether we want to have a healthier lifestyle, better manage our long-term health problems, or enhance our mental wellbeing then the simple changes we make for ourselves can make a big difference: that’s self care.

Alongside all the things to do, our Health Portal has lots of advice, information and resources to help you along the way.

And remember – self care isn’t just about living for longer.  In fact, it’s actually more about being healthy for longer.  A healthy body and mind means we get to live life to the full, with fewer limitations on what we do and how we do it.
