Along with Thurrock Council, we are holding a consultation on our principles and ideas for driving improvements in health and social care.
The health and social care services in Thurrock, as in much of the country, are struggling to cope with the increased number of people needing services. At the same time, the funding for these services has reduced. This means that unless we find different ways of doing things, there’s a real risk that we won’t be able to provide the right care to those that need it.
The people of Thurrock have told us that it is difficult to understand health and care services. You have also told us that you often find yourselves telling the same story several times and the services we provide aren’t always good enough. Thanks to your feedback on what you think would help people to be as healthy as possible, we have developed our plans for improvements to health and care under the name For Thurrock in Thurrock. We would like to hear your views and whether you think we’ve missed anything.
