MPs and Peers have an important role in holding the Government to account on its health policy.  We welcome support from members of both Houses of Parliament. Here are some ways you can get involved:

  • Writing to your local PCN and ICS to ask what plans they have to embed self-care into the primary care pathway to help signpost people to self-care and reduce pressures on their network.

  • Ask the Government what it is doing to promote self-care at the national level and whether it has plans to develop a national self-care strategy to integrate self care into the wider health system.

  • Raise awareness in Parliament around the importance of self-care in helping to reduce pressure on primary and secondary care and the role of pharmacies in supporting people to self-care.
