A spokesman said: “People ask hat is supported self-care?

“Self-care doesn’t mean you get less help from your doctor.

“It’s all about what else you can do alongside the medical professionals.

“Self-care means looking after yourself and your loved ones, whether that’s taking medicine when you have a cold, or doing some exercise.

She added: “Supported self-care is all about services, groups and activities that help people to look after themselves, for example self-management programmes.

“It’s about finding activities that focus on what you can do. not what you can’t do.”
