Many thanks to all who helped collect in Chelmsford town centre on Saturday. Here are some pictures of the day.
Tonight is the penultimate session in the current GTG season. Tonight’s session is Reflexology, Massage and a general chit chat about the last 7 days.
Look forward to seeing you there…
Please find below links to a consultation on NHS continuing healthcare that Enable East has been independently commissioned to run on behalf of Mid Essex Clinical Commissioning Group.
The consultation regards proposals for how NHS continuing healthcare is provided in someone’s home in the future.
We would encourage you to forward this consultation onto any person or group who may be interested in this consultation.
NHS continuing healthcare is a package of care funded solely by the NHS that is awarded to eligible adults to meet needs that have arisen as a result of disability, accident or illness. It may be provided in any setting including, but not limited to, a care home, hospice or the person’s own home.
The consultation concerns how NHS continuing healthcare resources in someone’s home should be allocated in Mid Essex in future.
The proposals would not affect resources allocated to those currently receiving NHS continuing care at home, although some care providers might change.

With the better weather and longer days ahead of us the Monthly Social Group Evenings will recommence after the Winter break on Tuesday, 28th April.
These popular evenings are a chance to relax and unwind with your Committee, other Branch members and their families. We even have a therapist on hand to offer a massage to those tight muscles being challenged by MS.
So come and join us for a drink and a smile from 7.30pm at Margaretting Village Hall, Wantz Road, Margaretting CM4 0EP!
These are still a regular feature in our diary of events, with lunch dates being held at The Angel, Broomfield Road, Chelmsford and coffee mornings at The Lordship Cafe, Writtle.
The Coffee Mornings take place on the first Saturday of every month from 10am, and Lunch Dates commence at 12pm, on Wednesday, 22nd April, Thursday, 21st May and Thursday, 25th June.
These dates are all listed in the Events a Summary, so detach the list, attach it to your fridge or place it somewhere handy so you don’t miss out!.
We thought that would get your attention!
We are proud of the work our members put in to helping the Branch, and another example of such work is the sponsored bike ride to France taking place between 2nd – 5th May. This is being organised by one of our members to raise funds specifically for this Branch.
