CCGs in mid and south Essex to decide on consultation

The Joint Committee of the five clinical commissioning groups are set to consider proposals for public consultation at the end of this month on the future of health and care services across mid and south Essex.

These proposals are a result of detailed work undertaken by clinical teams across health and care organisations to improve the services provided to the 1.2 million people living in mid and south Essex.

A detailed pre-consultation business case and a plan for a period of public consultation will be considered and have been published in draft (http://bit.ly/2mUdsKq) today (23rd November), ahead of the meeting to be held on the 29th November 2017 in the Marconi Suite, Civic Centre, Duke Street, Chelmsford at 3pm.
