Be Self-Care Aware! Posted or Updated on 9 Nov 2020

Bexley GPs are no longer routinely writing prescriptions for coughs and colds, Hay fever, allergies, dry skin, upset tummies, minor cuts, and other minor ailments and injuries.

Instead, patients are encouraged to treat short term minor health problems at home, with Over-the-counter (OTC) medicines where appropriate.

This is known as self-care.
