Health Clinics and Hospitals
The health service (NHS) in Lancaster provides services that everyone in the population can access. These are called universal services. It also provides other services that you are more likely to come across because your child needs extra help and support. These services are called specialist services. Due to the varying and often complex needs of children, it is possible that a range of health professionals will be involved in helping and supporting you, your child, and your family.
A range of common illnesses and injuries can be treated at home by combining a well-stocked medicine cabinet with plenty of rest. Self-care is the best choice to treat very minor illnesses and injuries.
Your local pharmacist can provide advice on common illnesses and the best medicines to treat them. Visit your local pharmacy when you are suffering from a common health problem that does not require being seen by a nurse or doctor.
