Taking Care of

NHS Stockport Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) has launched a campaign about self-care called 'Taking Care of'. It's a guide to taking care of all sorts of everyday, minor illnesses.

It will help you to:

  • better understand how to spot the signs of common ailments
  • confidently know how to help you or your family to recover
  • know when to consult your local pharmacist, or, in more serious situations, your GP practice

You can find the Taking Care of guide on the NHS Stockport CCG website. New subjects will be added at the beginning of each month and all include advice recommended by medical practitioners.
