Sharon Duke, Communities Co-ordinator at Poynton Town Council said:
Since undertaking the self care campaign training I have delivered five self care workshops at Poynton High School and over 150 pupils attended. Self Care is about keeping fit and healthy, understanding when you can look after yourself, when a pharmacist can help, when to get advice from your GP or another health professional. It was great to see how engaged the pupils were in the workshop, it was a brilliant opportunity to provide them with the information and confidence needed for them to enable them to self care.’’

Noreen Caldwell, Public Engagement Manager at NHS South Cheshire CCG said:
“I’m really proud of the work that Poynton Town have done to achieve the NHS Bronze Self Care Award. It’s really important that we promote self care as this provides people with the advice and support needed to treat minor conditions themselves or signpost them to the right care for their need.”
