GP Practice Awards back for a third year and we need your nominations

Following the success of last year’s event, the local NHS has partnered with the Echo once again to recognise good work and good people in our GP surgeries in the Quality Awards 2018.    

It is estimated that over 4,000 appointments take place every day in GP practices across south east Essex.  Most of us never get to hear about the positive stories, the staff that go the extra mile for their patients. It is not an exaggeration to say many of them save lives every day of the week.

Heatwave Update

The Met Office has issued a level 3 alert regarding a heatwave in the East of England. This means 90% chance of going above 30 degree C in our locality.

The NHS in south east Essex is urging people to look after themselves, act responsibility and use NHS services sensibly, during the heatwave this week: please think twice before heading to A&E or calling 999 when it’s not an emergency.
