Last week, we hosted a special Facebook Live event chaired by Healthwatch Essex on our This Is Your Life community group.
The event offered an opportunity to have an open conversation with the community about:
- A shared understanding of the number of GP appointments taking place every day
- The type of illness being treated and the role residents can play to help prevent illness
- The new healthcare professionals that are working alongside GPs to support patients
- What’s available to help local people get access to health and care advice quickly and easily e.g. the role of community pharmacy, NHS App for repeat prescriptions.
