Special community group Facebook event held to discuss GP Access

 

Last week, we hosted a special Facebook Live event chaired by Healthwatch Essex on the 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.
