The symptom checkers on the website or NHS app can help you to understand what you can do for yourself or if you need to seek additional help.

In Gloucestershire, the ASAP website and app is also available to offer self-care advice and direct you to other services when needed.

Be prepared for common health problems by keeping a well-stocked medicine cabinet at home. This list on the website will help you deal with most minor health problems and illnesses.

Sometimes, self-care at home won’t suffice and you may need further advice. You could speak to a pharmacist or contact NHS 111 via telephone or online.
