A Health and Wellbeing Exhibition bringing alternative therapies and traditional health services together will be staged at the Princes Theatre, Clacton on Sea on Saturday 26 October from 10.30am until 4.30pm.


Entry is free and will showcase the services and activities available across North Essex to help prevent and treat illness and disease and to support people to manage their long term health conditions.


There will be a dynamic mix of exhibitors participating such as reflexology, acupuncture, healthy foods and demonstrations including zumba, pilates and belly dancing.  Members of the public will also be able to have health checks and screening and will have access to many free and low cost taster sessions including beauty therapies, reiki healing, Indian head massage and spinal assessments.


Brenda Ellis, CVST Chairman said, “People will not only find out about the many traditional services available but will also get the chance to try out alternative health therapies.  Often people say they don’t know which way to turn when they need help – this event will provide answers to questions and point people in the right direction”.


The event is being hosted by CVS Tendring and sponsored by the Colchester Catalyst Charity and the Big Lottery Fund, promises to be a must for all those who are interested in seeking a fulfilling healthy longer and independent life.


Help shape local NHS decisions

The NHS in North East Essex is inviting anyone interested to come to the local Health Forum meetings in Harwich (Dovercourt), Clacton and Colchester.

Everyone is invited to attend any of the October meetings of the NE Essex Health Forum, to discuss important issues within the local NHS. The Health Forum ensures that views and experiences of local residents are fully taken into account by the NE Essex Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG). The CCG plans and buys healthcare locally (not including GPs).
Each meeting will hear from a manager at NHS England, and there will be a discussion around local GP surgeries and issues raised by local patients. People attending are welcome to raise their own issues.  Staff working for the CCG PALS service will explain how they can advise and give information to patients and how they can help resolve any concerns or problems they have with NHS services.  People attending will have a chance to directly question senior managers from the CCG on their actions and plans.  The Clacton meeting will have a discussion, following the recent CCG Board decision, on plans to improve use of community beds at Clacton Hospital.
