What is Self Care?

Self-care is about:

Empowering people with the confidence and information to look after themselves when they can, and visit the GP when they need to, which (sic) gives people greater control of their own health and encourages healthy behaviours that help prevent ill health in the long-term.” - Self-Care Forum

NHS England has worked with Nesta, the Health Foundation, the National Association of Voluntary and Community Action and others to develop a vision and implementation plans for self-care.
