Self Care



Self care is all about looking after yourself at home first before seeking medical help for common healthcare conditions such as


  • Colds, coughs and flu
  • Sprains, aches and pain
  • Allergies
  • Hay fever
  • Pain relief
  • Stomach upsets
  • Temperatures
  • Headlice treatments
  • Rashes
  • Cuts and bruises
  • Colic and teething
  • Headaches and migraines

If you need help for common healthcare conditions your local pharmacy should be your first port of call. The Pharmacist will have the knowledge to help you. It may mean that you will have to pay for medicines that you may be able to get free from the doctor.  You may be say that why should I pay if I get my medicines free?


This practice is part of the Great Yarmouth and Waveney CCG who do not support the prescribing of over the counter medicines that are available to purchase from any local pharmacists. This applies to children or adults with common illnesses or minor ailments that could be easily treated at home. This will ensure we have the resources to continue to provide treatments for more complex healthcare conditions.
