My Planned Care

If you are currently waiting for a hospital appointment, operation or treatment, we wanted to let you know that the NHS has recently launched the My Planned Care Patient Digital Platform www.myplannedcare.nhs.uk which gives you direct access to the latest average wait time information for your trust, as well as helpful advice and support whilst you wait.
We encourage to look at this site where you may find the information you need before contacting your GP or hospital for an update about any elective procedures you are waiting for.
Updated weekly, the site is easy-to-use and is ‘open-access’ so your carer, friends, relatives and your NHS team can also access this information.

                                                              

Self Care

Self Care is about looking after yourself in a healthy way.  It can be anything from doing some small exercises, managing common illnesses e.g. colds and flu, headaches or living with and understanding your long term condition e.g. Asthma, COPD or Diabetes.

The Pharmacy can be a big help in promoting self care and this can be your first port of call as opposed to coming to see the Doctor.  There are also a number of excellent websites with a wealth of information on:

www.nhs.uk

www.selfcareforum.org

www.treatyourselfbetter.co.uk

www.patient.info

You can also look at the two enclosed links to aid you when seeking advice with common illnesses:
