During Self Care Week (16 – 22 November) NHS Southend Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) wants to remind you why it’s important to choose well when accessing local health services, so that everyone can get the best out of the NHS.
It is important to make the most of the range of NHS services available to you and choose the right health service for your health needs. There might even be something you can do for yourself first, especially when it comes to minor ailments or injuries such as, colic, flu, sprains or strains.
England's leading mental health director has praised Southend-on-Sea’s work on the issue, calling the borough “inspiring”.
Dr Geraldine Strathdee is NHS England’s National Clinical Director for Mental Health. She recently attended the South East Essex Mental Health Summit, which was organised by a number of partners including NHS Southend Clinical Commissioning Group and Southend-on-Sea Borough Council.
