BE SELF-CARE AWARE
Posted on 19 Mar 2019
NHS England has launched a scheme which could save the NHS £136 million a year and encourage more people to self care.
A list of 33 minor health concerns has been identified by a national joint clinical working group which are either self-limiting or suitable for self-care. Vitamins/minerals and probiotics have also been included as items of low clinical effectiveness which are of high cost to the NHS.
