Self-care Week: 2015

During Self Care Week (16 – 22 November) self management uk wants to remind you about why it’s important to choose well when accessing local health services, so that everyone can get the best out of the NHS.

It is important to make the most of the range of NHS services available to you and choose the right health service for your health needs.  There might even be something you can do for yourself first, especially when it comes to minor ailments or injuries such as, colic, flu, sprains or strains.

Mr Beedassy, an osteoarthritis patient, was referred to the  self management uk programme via his GP.

After four operations on his knee, Mr Beedassy was often bedbound and relied on his Zimmer frame and crutches to move around.  He also suffered from diabetes, taking daily insulin injections and tablets. Mr Beedassy found it difficult to control his diabetes, regardless of his food intake, diet and weight management, but he was optimistic that the self-management course could provide him with the tools to manage his long-term condition better.
