Your NHS is here for you when you need us but there’s lots of things you can do to stay well, help others in your community and help your NHS too – whether that’s choosing the right NHS service for your needs, keeping a well-stocked medicine cabinet or getting your vaccines.

Look out for a new video that is currently airing on ITV Hub and YouTube to help us get important messages around winter vaccinations and use of local pharmacies out into our communities.  For more information, please visit:

If you are pregnant, or know someone who is, please help spread the word about easy access vaccination clinics at Southend, Basildon or Broomfield hospital maternity departments between 9.30am and 4.30pm, Monday to Friday.

Anyone who is pregnant can find out more about pregnancy vaccinations, ask any questions they may have, and receive the vaccine on the day, thanks to these clinics within our maternity services.

Don’t forget, you can also subscribe to receive winter health information direct to your inbox to stay up to date with information and advice about how you can ‘Do Your Bit’ this winter. Each week for ten-weeks, you will receive a weekly email which will provide advice on how to stay well over the winter period. You will also receive ad-hoc winter alerts with cold weather advice.
