Another four self-care videos released by Better Care Together

Better Care Together has released four new videos, which cover common conditions including:

  • Gastroenteritis
  • Constipation
  • Threadworm
  • Tension Headaches

The first series of self-care videos, released at the end of May, have been viewed more than 1,000 times.

Dr Andy Knox, local GP and NHS North Lancashire CCG Lead for Health and Wellbeing, returns with more advice following the first set of films. Joining him is Dr Owen Galt, Consultant Paediatrician, from University Hospitals of Morecambe Bay NHS Foundation Trust to help explain: Gastroenteritis and Constipation.

Dr Andy Knox stated “I’m really pleased with the response the first set of films have had. These 1,000 views may have otherwise been 1,000 appointments and journeys to see a GP; which can add considerable pressure to our patients, when the best place to be is resting at home. I’m excited to see colleagues from across the NHS coming forward to share their self-care tips and look forward to making more films.”

“Patients can now view the films before going to see their GP to get professional advice without having to make, and travel to, an appointment”
