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.

As a self care aware pharmacy we are here to help you feel able to look after your own health when it is right for you.  So, when you come in for a consultation, our pharmacist and support staff  will talk to you about what you can do to help maintain and improve your health.
