Self Care Week 2011

Following the success of previous years, Self Care Week 2011 will take place from 14-20 November 2011.

This is an opportunity for NHS, social care and voluntary sector organisations to raise awareness of what is available locally to help people take care of themselves.

The self care forum was established in May 2011 with the specific aim of furthering the reach of self care and embedding it into everyday life.  Forum members include patients, GPs, nurses, pharmacists, health service managers, and DH. The forum has been tasked by Paul Burstow, minister for care services, with organising and raising awareness of Self Care Week 2011, building on the resources developed by DH in the previous two years.
