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.

Local NHS support Diabetes Week

This year Diabetes Week (10 - 16 June 2019) provides an opportunity to increase the public’s understanding of diabetes in general.

Diabetes is a lifelong condition and currently affects around 3.7 million people in the UK with an estimated 1 million more people living with it who don’t know they have it as they have not been diagnosed so it’s important for everyone to know as much about the condition as possible.
