Working together with Essex County Council

The CCG aims to work together with the council to use the same support providers and way of paying the money.

This means that people who have a personal budget from both the council and CCG, or who move from the council to CCG funding, will have a better experience.

Please note that we may use the same approach as the council, but NHS care, unlike social care, is not means tested.
