Health and care organisations in partnership across mid and south Essex are considering proposals for public consultation at the end of this month on proposals for change in some hospital services.
Subject to the approval of the Joint Committee of clinical commissioning groups (CCGs) in mid and south Essex, the proposed changes would happen over the next two to five years. They form part of a plan to prepare for a continuing rise in the number of people who need health and care. These proposals build on the benefits from Southend, Broomfield and Basildon hospitals working together as one group to make the most of clinical talent, new treatments and technology and achieve better outcomes and quality of care for patients.
Feedback from the consultation will be considered by the Joint Committee in May 2018.
