Festive food for thought with Ivanna Livewell of the National Elf Service

The local NHS – or ‘Elf service’ across mid and south Essex – is supporting people to stay well this winter in a new campaign that our own pixie pal, “Ivanna Livewell” shares advice and support to help combat winter illness.

The #IvannaLivewell campaign is raising awareness of key winter health risks. She is offering advice on local health services available throughout December and over the holiday period – as well as general self-care advice.
