NHS Consultation Your Care in the Best Place

CCG Joint Committee formal public consultation on the outline plans for the future of health and care services across mid and south Essex

 

Please see information below from  CCG Joint Commitee

 

The CCG Joint Committee has agreed to launch the formal public consultation on the outline plans for the future of health and care services across mid and south Essex, and in particular our three hospitals.

 

These proposals set out the ambition to reorganise services across our hospital sites in Basildon, Chelmsford, Southend and Orsett so that we are working together to deliver the best services we can, using our people and resources as effectively as possible for the greatest benefit. 

 

Full details of the consultation proposals can be found at www.nhsmidandsouthessex.co.uk

 

The consultation period runs until 9th March and during that time the STP will be holding regular opportunities to meet, discuss and capture feedback.

 

All of the feedback from the consultation will then undergo independent review before it is considered by the Joint Committee in the early summer of 2018 along with clinical evidence, financial plans and other details in a final business case, before any change is agreed.

Pedestrian Crossing outside Medical Centre

UPDATE: It is now being reported on the www.roadworks.org site that this work is now scheduled between 21st October and 29th October 2017.  

 

The Parish Office had been made aware that the crossing was due to be installed by Essex County Council Highways during the school summer holidays after it was due to go in during May.    Unfortunately, this has now been delayed again.    The Parish Council is very frustrated and disappointed that this work has been delayed yet again and is working with Essex County Cllr Spence to ensure that the crossing is installed as soon as possible.  

Up to date information about this, and all other roadworks in the local area, can be found by viewing the website below.
