Paramedics help ensure you get the right care this Winter

NHS Castle Point and Rochford and NHS Southend Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCG) are helping local GP practices meet the demand of services to ensure patients get the right care this Winter.

One of the clinical roles introduced in GP practices across Castle Point, Rochford and Southend is that of Paramedic to support GPs to spend more time with patients who need them most – especially when demand is higher in the Winter months.

Local GPs urge higher risk patients to get their flu vaccine

Local GPs are encouraging people in high risk groups to get their free NHS flu vaccine to help protect them from flu and its potentially serious complications.

This year’s flu vaccination campaign will be the biggest ever, with 25 million people offered vaccines free. GP practices and local pharmacies will be offering the vaccine to eligible patients, and you are advised to book an appointment.
