'Better Care Together' is a review of local health services, covering the hospitals in Lancaster, Barrow and Kendal. The review is an opportunity to make sure the best possible health services are provided across North Lancashire and South Cumbria. To find out more visit their website. As part of a Better Care Together initiative, Dr Andy Knox, a GP in Morecambe Bay, has created some Self-Care videos to help promote health and wellbeing to the public.
The videos cover a range of common health problems, such as earache, ringworm, eczema, head lice and sore throats; In total five videos have been created for the first series, with more planned for the future.
Dr Knox said "The problems identified in the videos are common and by following the advice many will clear up on their own. Should the symptoms persist we would always recommend you contact your GP."
"The videos aim to help people care for themselves without the hassle of making an appointment with their GP. They also aim to help the public save on unnecessary travel and additional expense, by managing the ailments simply by watching the videos at home and following the advice."
