Over 100 different community groups and representatives came together at a stakeholder meeting in Southend to help to develop new models of care across south east Essex to improve the health and wellbeing of residents.

The new models of care are a key component of a new Locality Strategy, jointly developed by local NHS commissioners (CCGs), key providers, local authorities, and the third sector.   The strategy has a clear focus on prevention, joining up services, keeping people well and in their own homes, supporting the strengths of communities and individuals.
