Let the NHS know what you think about changes to the Cumberlege Intermediate Care Centre

The NHS is planning to change the way the Cumberlege Intermediate Care Centre (CICC) in Rochford works.

At the moment, Southend residents who have had a stroke, or who need some nursing and therapy support - for example after a chest infection - are admitted to CICC. This might be after spending some time in one of the main hospitals in Mid & South Essex.

The NHS wants to change the use of beds so that only people who have had a stroke, or only people who need that extra nursing and therapy support, are admitted to Rochford. Southend residents who do not meet these criteria would be transferred to Brentwood Community Hospital for a period of up to 6 weeks.

If you or a loved one have been admitted in the past to CICC, you can come to a public meeting on 15 February, 2024. It is really important that local people make their views known.

Time: 5.00 to 6.30pm

Where: Forum Library Elmer Ave, Southend-on-Sea SS1 1NS
