Motion text

That this House congratulates the Self Care Campaign on the launch of its manifesto on 16 March 2010, seeking to increase the number of people with minor ailments who opt for self care; recognises the important role self care can play in the treatment of minor ailments; acknowledges that as well as providing more timely care, which benefits the patient, self care would take significant pressure off GPs; notes recent research by the Proprietary Association of Great Britain that found that many patients begin to self care, but too many abandon this approach in favour of visiting their GP; acknowledges that minor ailments account for 18 per cent. of GP consultations; is concerned that these appointments cost the NHS £2 billion a year; believes that helping people to strengthen their ability to self care, through increasing patient confidence and independence in their behaviour will lead to an increase in the number of people self caring for minor ailments and using NHS resources effectively; and calls on the Government to support the Self Care Campaign, which is already backed by leading health professionals and patient representatives.
