We all know that an active lifestyle is one of the best ways to stay healthy - but a few sports can feel closed-off to people who belong to minority communities. An Essex County FA survey is aiming to identify the barriers and motivation for football from Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGB&T) participants, and the most effective ways to address them.
NHS Mid Essex Clinical Commissioning Group (MECCG) has taken the decision to change local policy regarding NHS Continuing Healthcare (CHC) services in the area.
The CCG has produced a leaflet which tells you about the organisation and some of the projects we've been working on over the last 12 months. It also sets out our ambitions for your local NHS over the next 12 months.
Do you want to have your say on how your local NHS is run? Do you have a few hours a month to volunteer to help your local CCG design and deliver safe, high quality healthcare services in mid Essex?
Over the last couple of days you may have seen the coverage of the NHS Minor Ailments Scheme on Facebook and in the national press.
