In this section we offer you advice on the ways in which you can speak up about the support which you receive. This might involve making a complaint, but could involve giving positive feedback to the people who are supporting you.
Whether you feel nervous around new technology or you're someone who likes to have the latest gadgets, these pages explain the benefits technology can bring, helping you and yours to live independently, or get fitter and healthier.
Our care provider information portal contains information for businesses, suppliers or providers working in Essex. The portal will provide information our vision, commissioning intentions, how to work with us and information on events, news or activities in Essex.
If you move to a new area it is always advisable to register with a local general practitioner (GP) practice as soon as you arrive, particularly if you already have health problems which are likely to need medical treatment at any time.
Even if you are in good health, being registered with a GP means that you will experience less delays in getting treatment if you become unwell.
Normally you will need to make an appointment with a GP surgery and have a medical before you register with them.
If you don't know where your local GPs are based then the NHS Choices website allows you to search for GP surgeries in your area. You can then check what services they offer, and how other patients have rated them.
The Care Quality Commission (CQC) have produced a leaflet providing Top Tips When Choosing your GP.
The Easy Health website has gathered together various easy-read leaflets which will help people with learning disabilities to know what to expect when they go to see a doctor or visit hospital.
