Self Care

Our valued patient group members help the CCG to promote Self Care. 

For example PCRG member Bob Hackett was interviewed and featured in Together magazine ( a publication delivered to every home in Basildon) where he spoke about self care and staying well in winter.

Patient group members help the CCG to promote national Self Care Week.

This year's event ran from 12-18 November and patient representatives were out and about in their local communities encouraging residents to invest in their future health and well being.

The initiative included a competition for children to design bunting associated with self care. Patients promoted the competition within their local communities generating more than 500 entries from ten participating primary schools. Three members joined Board member Katherine Kirk to judge the winners and present some of the prizes to schools.
