In our shared vision for Mid & South Essex we know that for most people to benefit,
we must release resources and invest in local teams, increase skills and innovation
in local settings, closer to our communities, supporting more people outside of
hospital. We all have to take action to address rising demand and costs - use of Emergency
Departments in our area is increasing at double the national average. This cannot be
sustained by the NHS long-term, current services have to change.

Our Sustainability and Transformation Partnership have said that a network of urgent and emergency care could help solve the current problems of access, and also stated that we want to create a system of excellence using our network of hospital centres.
