Lifestyle & self-care

Taking care of yourself

At NHS North Yorkshire Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), we want to empower people to take charge of their own health and make positive lifestyle choices. Resources previously developed by NHS Scarborough and Ryedale CCG may help you to achieve your goals, whether it’s to stop smoking, lose weight, or exercise more. Click here for more.


NHS North Yorkshire Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) does not support the general prescribing of over-the-counter medicines. Self-care is about looking after yourself and treating minor ailments with simple, over-the-counter solutions that are available from local pharmacies and supermarkets. You can find out more about how you can treat a range of minor conditions, here.
