A review of Self Care Week found that more than 300 organisations participated in the awareness week in 2017, 76 of those were clinical commissioning groups (CCGs) with a combined reach of more than 21 million people, a third of the population in England.

The review also highlights findings from a survey of participants which found that self care for self-treatable conditions was the most popular message being communicated and signposting to the community pharmacist the second most favoured. 

The survey also found that social media was the most chosen medium being used during Self Care Week.
