We’ve released the latest edition of CCG Insight, a magazine packed full of information on healthcare in Thurrock plus details of the CCG's and our partners' work in the community.
The winter issue features the launch of a consultation into NHS services across mid and south Essex. The Your Care in the Best Place consultation shares plans for the future of NHS services with a particular focus on hospital services at Southend, Basildon and Broomfield Hospitals. The consultation also proposes to transfer of services from Orsett Hospital into new centres that will be located across Thurrock, and for Basildon and Brentwood residents some services will be offered in that area too. Under these plans, Orsett Hospital would only close after all four centres open.
There’s also exciting news from the Thurrock Health Hubs, which are now open seven days a week (7pm – 9pm weekdays and 9am and 12pm weekends), and updates on innovative changes in general practice, including specialist therapists who will be working with diabetes patients who are struggling to cope with their condition.
