The local NHS needs your help to promote a competition to get local children thinking about how they can stay well this winter.
It’s never too early to get children thinking about how they can stay well and prevent illnesses. As we approach winter, illnesses are more likely to spread and cause infection – particularly among younger people, such as school children.
Nationally, as well as locally, the winter months can be challenging for the NHS, especially for urgent care services. This is why it’s important to spread awareness messages amongst parents of young children (and young children themselves), to help prepare for this period. It is also an opportunity to embed prevention messages to help raise awareness of the benefits of preventative health and self-care generally.
The Porl-E Schools Competition is open to pre-schools and primary schools (KS1 and KS2) across south east Essex (Southend and Castle Point and Rochford). Closing date for the competition is Sunday 15th December 2019.
