Major plans announced to improve GP services - and bring more doctors to mid and south Essex

The primary care strategy has been published by the five Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) in the STP area and aims to:

1. Make it quicker and easier for patients to be seen locally by NHS professionals

2. Reduce pressure on GPs so they can focus on patients with the greatest need

3. Improve the recruitment of GPs and other healthcare professionals to mid and south Essex

To explain more about the local plan and tell you more about what’s already happening, the CCGs communications team have developed a video that we are planning to use on social media and at events as part of local engagement plans.

We have started to engage with local residents to explain the case for change and how they can get involved in supporting their local GP services and wider health services. 

Details of future public meetings and other ways to get involved will be posted on this page.  If you would like us to come to a local meeting to present the plan, please contact amandashears@nhs.net.
