YOUR HEALTH SERVICE IS HERE FOR YOU THIS EASTER
NHS leaders across Thurrock and the whole of mid and south Essex area are putting together a range of information for local people to help them know what services are available this bank holiday.
During the long bank holiday period, many services are reduced but there are still services available every single day, from pharmacies to out of hours doctors, Thurrock’s Health Hubs and NHS111.
There will be a continuation of the successful GP service at Orsett Hospital which will be available from 12pm to 3pm every day to provide a service for people over the Easter bank holiday period.
Jane Foster-Taylor, Chief Nurse at NHS Thurrock Clinical Commissioning Group said:
“We know that many people worry when they become ill over a bank holiday, that’s why we’ve extended funding for the GP in Orsett Hospital to continue over this bank holiday. What’s more our Health Hubs will be open as normal on Saturday (20 April) and Easter Sunday (21 April). On Good Friday (19 April) and Bank Holiday Monday (22 April), the hubs will be open from 9am to 11am.
“Most of our services in Thurrock are able to help you with the majority of your health issues, whether that’s minor injuries or an urgent health matter.”
