Self Treatment of Minor Illness

The purpose of this section is to explain and help you cope with minor illness at home – explaining simple treatments for minor illnesses which occur in every family from time to time. In some of these cases there is nothing a doctor or nurse can do that a patient cannot do just as well. For useful health information on many illnesses please visit the Patient website

Remember, whenever you are really anxious or ill, advice can be obtained on the telephone from the surgery or by telephoning NHS 111 or by going to the NHS 111 website
