RESIDENTS in Southend are being asked their views to help plan the future of urgent care services in the borough. A public consultation has been launched over a proposal to develop a new service co-located with A&E at Southend Hospital, once the contract for a walk-in service at St Luke's Health Centre has concluded.
This year’s annual NHS health event proved to be the biggest to date with almost 150 people taking part. The theme of this year’s event was ‘Making Southend a Healthy Place to Live’. Guests heard about data sharing and were able to take part in group discussions about Southend’s strategy for older people and the borough’s Health and Wellbeing ambitions.
NHS Southend Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) is warning members of the public, patient and staff never to reveal personal details to unknown callers.
We have become aware of patients in other areas who have been contacted by companies asking people about their health conditions and asking to make an appointment in their homes.
