Local doctors are asking Newham residents to be aware of the full range of health services available – as well as reminding them that the first port of call might not always be A&E.
NHS Newham Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), the organisation responsible for planning and buying most local health services, is inviting local people to attend its annual public meeting.
NHS Newham Clinical Commissioning Group, in conjunction with Newham Council, is urging residents to ensure they and their families are protected against measles by having the MMR vaccination.
Pregnant women in Newham are being offered additional practical and emotional support during pregnancy, childbirth and the early weeks of motherhood as part of a highly successful pilot scheme.
GPs in Newham are encouraging residents not to ignore symptoms and to tell their doctor if they notice themselves getting out of breath doing things they used to be able to do, or if they’ve had a persistent cough for three weeks or more.
The Newham Clinical Commissioning Group Annual Public Meeting will be held on Wednesday 7 September 2016 from 6 - 8.30pm at The Crystal 1 Siemens Brothers Way, Royal Victoria Dock, London E16 1GB
