Who is involved?
The Mid and South Essex Health and Care Partnership (HCP) includes the main health and care organisations working with a network of 179 GP practices.
Each of the main organisations has a representative on our Partnership Board, which oversees several working groups to deliver our Partnership plan. There are also a number of advisory groups, which ensure expert input from professionals, patients and local people.
