SUCCESS REGIME – MID & STH ESSEX.  GET INVOLVED. HAVE YOUR SAY.  WORKSHOPS COMING. FROM SEPT 2016

Part of the NHS Five Year Forward View will allow local health services to take decisive steps to secure high quality, joined-up, improved care.  Three main areas that may involve service changes are: * Faster progress towards joined up health and social care based around localities, *More collaboration and shared services across the three main hospitals in Basildon, Chelmsford and Southend, *Changes in urgent and emergency care in line with national recommendations. Other areas involved: simplifying commissioning and contractual arrangements, developing the healthcare workforce and improving IT and access to shared care records. The intention is to have clinically sustainable services in financial balance by 2018/19.

Public workshops planned for Sept 2016 to start discussions with local people about services and garner views on potential change, to share people’s experiences and give feedback on what might/might not work in future.  Dates will be published here when we have then.
