In April 2013, West Essex Clinical Commissioning Group became the statutory body responsible for buying healthcare services on behalf of 290,000 people in the Epping Forest, Harlow and Uttlesford districts. The commissioning group is made up of 38 of general practices who work together to ensure the best possible healthcare is available to everyone in west Essex.
Our aim for the first year was to build on our founding ambitions and to trailblaze new and exciting ways of delivering integrated services for the future.
This inspired us to undertake a major engagement exercise which took us into our local communities to talk about health and care with patients, residents and wider stakeholders, our partners and our providers. The discussions that took place through the programme “My Health, My Future, My Say”, have contributed directly to how we plan to design and shape local NHS services for the next three, five and ten years.
This year we have taken big strides. However, we are not complacent and have great ambitions for the future.
