Childhood Illness Workshops
Parents across mid Essex are invited to a second phase of free NHS workshops aimed at providing information and advice about common childhood illnesses.
The first phase of workshops, run by local GPs and community pharmacists last November, aimed to help parents feel confident when dealing with common illnesses by talking through scenarios providing practical advice on what to do and when.
