Doctors should support and educate their patients in the benefits of self-care, the BMA is highlighting during a national-awareness week. Self-Care Week runs from 16 to 22 November in England with the aim of encouraging patients to take control of their health throughout their lives. This includes urging patients to understand better how to look after minor ailments and how to prevent ill health through physical and mental well-being.
