The NHS in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland is launching a campaign this Self-Care Week to build patients’ confidence in preventing and treating minor illnesses themselves.

The campaign, which runs from 13th to 19th November 2017, brings together a full range of videos and information into one place so that patients are better equipped to take control of their own health for life.

Self-Care Week, which forms part of the Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland winter plan, will feature a different topic on each day to break down the advice given into manageable chunks.
