NHS - Your Guide to being self-care aware

Our Stay Well Derbyshire website (www.nhsstaywellderbyshire.co.uk) contains specific information on how to treat minor conditions and is useful for parents.  There is also a Facebook Page: https://www.facebook.com/nhsstaywellderbyshire/

The 'Self-care Aware' campaign supports new guidance issued by NHS England.  Over 50 million people a year visit their doctor for a minor condition and spend over £136 million a year on prescriptions for medicines which could be bought from a pharmacy or supermarket.  We are working hard to engage with local GP's and pharmacies, school nursing teams as well as schools and other groups to actively support and encourage people to buy medicines instead of visiting GP's to request a prescription.   The guidance covers over 35 conditions which are considered to be self-limiting minor conditions and includes coughs and colds, conjunctivitis, fever, sore throat, rashes and hay fever.

Parents who obtain over-the-counter medicines are able to authorise their use in school, where appropriate for their child, with written parental consent, as per school policy.  All medication MUST be labelled (or labelled by the parent) with the child's full name and school name.
