Brentwood Health Awareness Day

Brentwood Health Awareness Day is an annual event at the chapel ruins in Brentwood High Street and this year patient group members John Lutchmiah and Tim Hogan helped the CCG to run two information stands.

The event is organised by Diabetes UK - Brentwood branch and attracts hundreds of shoppers who can take advantage of free diabetes checks and find out about services from health providers and local organisations.

John and Tim spoke to residents about the benefits of joining the Patient Participation Group (PPG) at their local practice GP and how their input helps to shape health services as patient feedback is reported to CCG Board members.

They also encouraged passers-by to share their memories of the NHS as part of the 70th birthday celebrations for the National Health Service.
