Self Care Week 2015

EDM number 638 in 2015-16, proposed by Kevin Barron on 03/11/2015.
Categorised under the topic of Health education and preventive medicine.

That this House welcomes the national awareness campaign Self Care Week, from 16 to 22 November 2015, which encourages people to Self Care For Life; notes the aim of highlighting how people can better look after their own physical health and mental wellbeing, and the steps that can be taken to help prevent avoidable conditions; recognises that self care is imperative for a healthy life and a sustainable NHS; regrets that many people remain confused about when to use A&E and GP services, and do not realise the wealth of health advice and treatments available from pharmacists; acknowledges the importance of signposting people to the most appropriate service for their symptoms; encourages hon. Members, staff and constituents to consult and promote the NHS Choices website which has advice to help people take care of their own health; and congratulates the Self Care Forum for organising Self Care Week and raising awareness of self care and its benefits.

This motion has been signed by a total of 15 MPs.
