Accessing primary care services from June 2020

The GP in Minor Injuries Unit pilot has now come to an end. You will no longer be able to access a GP in the Minor Injuries Unit at Orsett. This was originally a pilot that had been extended while we ensured more provision for primary care was made available in Thurrock.

The numbers of people using the service has been decreasing and there are lots more appointments available across our GP practices, with enhanced primary care services now in place, including paramedic practitioners, clinical pharmacists, advanced nurse practitioners, physiotherapists and mental health support. Find out more about on our webpage about the expanded GP practice team.

There’s also the Thurrock Health Hubs, which offer evening and weekend appointments 7 days a week providing extended access to primary care services. Find out more about the hubs on our Thurrock Health Hubs webpage

The Health Hubs also support on the day appointments, which can be booked through your GP practice. In addition, the health hubs offer appointments for things like immunisations, vaccinations, diabetes and long-term condition support and much more.
