Staying Healthy .............
We are committed to helping our patients to look after their own health and whilst we provide medication and regular check ups for patients with ongoing chronic diseases, it is important that patients have access to information and advice for patients to help them look after their own and their family's health, without the need for medical intervention, such as self- managing the symptoms of minor ailments at home.
A GP Practice in Worthing has set up, with the help of some of its patients and staff, a self care forum which offers simple, practical advice including fact sheets about common minor ailments. The fact sheets on the most common minor ailments explain what symptoms patients can expect, how long they should last, what you can do to help relieve symptoms as well as highlighting the more serious symptoms and you should seek medical advice. The link to the self care forum website is given below.
