Transforming primary care in Essex
NHS England and Essex CCGs have co-produced a county-wide primary care strategy. Co-ordinated by the NHS England area team, Transforming Primary Care in Essex: the Heart of Patient Care is the work of the county’s seven CCGs and includes contributions from the four primary care professions and Health Education England. The document emphasises the need for local hubs of care serving defined populations of at least 20,000, continual patient engagement, the importance of a multi-disciplinary approach and the role of public health in addressing the long term pressures on services. It also recognises the strains on general practice, which have damaged morale and “left many without appetite for change” and the role of the wider primary care workforce in bringing about effective and lasting change.
