Our 5 Year Plan for Improving Health and Care
Over the past few months the Mid and South Essex Health and Care Partnership have been working to develop a plan which sets out our goals, priorities and the actions we want to take to play our part in improving the health and wellbeing of people living in our cities, towns and villages right across mid and south Essex.
The plans aim to help health and care services meet the challenges faced today alongside identifying what is needed to meet the demands of the future.
With the population growing, new technology developed and research into the things that affect our health and wellbeing providing new answers, the support and help we sometimes need to lead a healthier life must change and adapt too.
It also explains how locally we will deliver the commitments set out in the NHS Long Term plan from cancer to cardiovascular disease, diabetes to mental health through to prevention and making the best use of technology.
But our plan isn’t just about the NHS because we need to think wider than that. Our plan represents the joint work across local government, social care teams, NHS services, community and voluntary sector organisations to look at education, employment, housing, our environment, as a means to preventing prevent poor health and wellbeing in the first place.
