The ‘Children and Young People Strategy 2015-2018’ includes details of how local agencies will work together to ensure children have access to high quality health, care and education services that meet the clinical and social needs of children, young people and their families.

Hard copies are available by calling Louise Hagger- Commissioning Manager Children and Maternity Services North East Essex CCG on 01206 286823.

 Restriction of services – the North East Essex CCG is planning to restrict some services during the summer of 2015.

The plans to restrict services have been carefully considered by our clinicians and we have conducted extensive engagement with our local communities over the past year.  We are carrying out further engagement during June, giving people an opportunity to feed their views to us.

While these are our intentions, it is important to stress that we will adopt a flexible approach.  If our position changes in the future, the CCG would reconsider or adapt the implementation of these changes.  We believe that by restricting the services in the way we intend to, we will save around £1m this year.  This is against a total of £22m for 2015/16.

Local people are invited to send their feedback either in writing to the North East Essex CCG, Primary Care Centre, Turner Road, Colchester, CO4 5JR or by email: NEECCG.enquiries@nhs.net
