Winter Heroes

Winter Heroes

Who do you know who has gone the extra mile to provide exceptional care this winter?

From 4 to 10 March we will be holding the first Winter Heroes Week and it is your chance to give a little back by saying thank you. It gives everyone in mid and south Essex the chance to acknowledge NHS health and social care, council or voluntary sector staff that have been their heroes this winter. Patients, their friends and families, work colleagues and professional peers can all nominate their personal heroes.
