Essex has been designated a Success Regime by NHS England.
The Success Regime is a national initiative designed to support the most challenged health and care systems across the country.

This is a two to three year programme of change to ensure hospitals, GP surgeries and other NHS service providers work together to address deep-rooted pressures and secure high quality, joined-up care for people.
Dr Anita Donley, a practising consultant physician in acute medicine at Plymouth Hospitals NHS Trust, with an interest in care for older people, has been appointed as the independent Chair of the Mid and South Essex Success Regime.

Key elements of this include: improvements on working together, joined up services planned around individuals and local populations, and changes to urgent and emergency care to improve provision and access.
