Self-care, pharmacies and GPs

In this section you will find support on how to manage minor illnesses at home, advice for parents when your child is unwell, and information on when to visit a pharmacy or GP.


Self-care is perfect if your condition is something you will be able to treat at home, such as coughs, colds and common childhood illnesses.


The pharmacy is a great place to go for expert advice and treatment for a range of common minor illnesses.
