Essex Welfare Services 

Together with Essex County Councils, the NHS and the emergency services we are trying to identify those over 70 in Essex or who have a pre-existing medical condition (who may normally be offered a flu jab) and pregnant women. The NHS will be contacting those they have records for but we want to make sure that nobody is left behind. In particular we are keen to identify those who may be isolated or not in regular contact with their doctors. There is a online registration system for people to register with or for their community to register for them. There is also a telephone line. Given the excellent and extensive network of volunteers Neighbourhood Watch has across Essex we need your help.

The telephone number is 0300 303 9988
