Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) announce public consultation on proposals for service changes

People in west Essex are being asked for their views on proposals designed to make best use of the money available to the local NHS, while helping as many people as possible to live healthier, longer lives and avoid preventable illnesses.

People in west Essex and east and north Hertfordshire are now benefiting from more efficient, joined-up care.  My Care Record allows clinicians at The Princess Alexandra Hospital NHS Trust in Harlow to view a patient’s medical history over a secure network.

Making our vision a reality 

The growing health and social care needs of our population can only be met using the funding available if the NHS and social care services work together with you to achieve this.

We have identified four key challenges:

1. Living well and preventing ill-health

2. Transforming primary and community services

3. Improving urgent and hospital services

4. Providing health and care more efficiently and effectively
