As part of the Five Year Forward View, the NHS is taking action to review urgent and emergency care services across the country. In January 2017, North East Essex CCG conducted a formal review - the Urgent Care Review - to determine if the current delivery of urgent care services - a walk in centre and two minor injury units - meet local needs.

As part of the review, the CCG sought the local population’s views on four potential Approaches:

  1. To continue commissioning a Walk in Centre service in Colchester and Minor Injury Units at Clacton and Harwich.
  2. To stop providing the Walk in Centre and Minor Injury Unit services. Instead, patients would be directed by NHS 111 and seen by their local GP, Out of Hours GP or encouraged to self-care.
  3. To establish a minor injury service in the community.
  4. To consider another Approach or idea from the public.
