Self Care Advice

The message from the North East’s NHS this winter is ‘Keep calm and look after yourself’.

Many of the common winter ailments and illnesses are easily treated at home, or with advice from a pharmacist – with no need to see a doctor or nurse.

NHS organisations across the region in Northumberland, Tyne and Wear, Durham, Darlington and Teesside are joining together to back the ‘Keep Calm’ campaign which gives advice on how to treat a range of common winter conditions by keeping a well-stocked medicines cabinet at home or speaking to your local pharmacist.
