Self-care is about looking after yourself in a healthy way. It can be anything from brushing your teeth to doing some exercise, managing common conditions such as headaches, cold and flu or living with a long term health problem, such as asthma or diabetes.
What is self-referral?
Did you know that there are some free NHS health services you can access without needing an appointment with your GP? This is called self-referral and could help you find the care you need quicker and more easily than going through your surgery.
You can register for most of them online. In some cases you refer yourself by phoning rather than emailing or by completing an online form.
Self-referral services vary by area, and they may be provided by a variety of organisations. Find more information and services local to you by visiting the NHS website.
This service is for patients aged 17 years old and over. It works by helping you understand what is happening to you, help you work through your difficult feelings and learn new ways of copying in order to improve your wellbeing.
This is a self-referral NHS service provided in partnership with local GPs and other health care providers, to ensure a joined up approach to your care. You have to be 16 years old and over to self refer and be registered with a GP in Hertfordshire.
