Patients reminded to order their repeat prescriptions early in time for the Bank Holiday

With a bank holiday coming up soon on Monday 27th August, North East Essex Clinical Commissioning Group are reminding patients to put their repeat prescription requests in and collect their medicines early so they aren’t caught out over the holiday.

 

Many GP practices and pharmacies will be closed across Colchester and Tendring for the day, meaning that patients may be waiting an extra day to receive their repeat medications. However, if patients request their medicine within good time and take the bank holiday into account, they should be able to avoid running short.

 

“It is an immense help to local NHS services if patients order their prescriptions early. This way, GP surgeries won’t feel rushed and patients will have enough of their regular medicines to cover the holiday weekend, avoiding any unnecessary worry and stress,” advised Carol Sampson, Interim Head of Medicines Management.

 

Patients are asked to check that they have a reasonable supply of their repeat medication. If they do not, they should request their repeat prescriptions through their GP surgery.

 

 

Residents to be offered advice on dog fouling and fly tipping

Residents and visitors to Clacton will be able to find out what they can do to help Tendring District Council (TDC) tackle fly-tipping and dog fouling during an advice day.  Officers from TDC’s waste management team will be on hand to answer any questions and give out top tips from 10am until 2pm on Friday, August 17.

 

The team will be located under a gazebo on the seafront near to Clacton Pier. People can drop-in at any time during the session.

Michael Talbot, TDC Cabinet Member for Environment, encouraged people to come along.  “Though we promote ways in which the public can report incidents of dog fouling or fly-tipping to us, people don’t often have the chance to ask us any questions or find out more,” Cllr Talbot said.  “This day will give people that opportunity, and help us to explain more about what residents and businesses can do, working alongside us to tackle these issues which we know impact on our district.”

 

People encouraged to sign up for older persons’ crucial crew

An event offering advice to older people on staying safe across a whole range of areas is returning to Tendring next month.  The Older Persons’ Crucial Crew, now in its fifth year, is being held on Thursday, September 27, at Clacton’s Princes Theatre. Free to attend, the Tendring Community Safety Partnership event will see speakers giving advice from seven organisations, ranging from Essex County Fire and Rescue Service to Essex Police, and a solicitors’ firm. Other community groups will also have stands at the event.

 

Lynda McWilliams, chairwoman of the Tendring Community Safety Partnership, encouraged people to come along.

“You’re never too old to learn something new, and this event is a great way of picking up some really useful tips on everything from fire and crime prevention, to getting the most out of your will,” Cllr McWilliams said.

“The speed-dating style of the event, where the speakers come and talk to smaller groups, also means you can really listen and ask questions – and get much more out of the event.”

 

The event is free and includes lunch, but places are limited and should be booked in advance by contacting Charlotte Root on 01255 686359 or This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it
