Know what to do after a bump on the head

This summer holiday, parents are offered advice on what to do in the event their child gets a head injury.

Health professionals in Mid and South Essex have worked together to create a guide for parents on what to do when a child has had a head injury. The guide outlines common symptoms after a head injury, what parents can do to help their children to recover and advice on when to seek medical attention.

Love your lungs and breathe easy

NHS Southend CCG and NHS Castle Point and Rochford CCG are supporting Breathe Easy week and urging people to ‘love their lungs’.

This year, Breathe Easy week runs from the 17 – 23 June. Events are organised by support groups including the NHS all across the UK. It was initially started by the British Lung Foundation (BLF), in an attempt to raise awareness and focus on lung health.
