Self Care is about looking after yourself; living a healthy lifestyle and looking at what you can do and want to do- rather than what you can’t do.
It is also about taking responsibility for your own health and wellbeing with the support of the people involved in your care.
We have a useful Self Care leaflet available to pick up in the surgery or you can request a copy be emailed to you via our secure online form
ORCHA For Health Apps
The local CCGs are now working with ORCHA, the Organisation for the Review of Care and Health Applications, to help people find the best and safest apps to use for their self care.
ORCHA robustly evaluate the hundreds of thousands of health and care apps that are currently available on the market, and provides an easy to use platform that makes it simple and quick to find the best and safest ones.
In short, they look at the Data Security, Clinical Effectiveness and User Experience of apps so that we don’t have to.
