The Southend Patient Participation Group Forum recently met to discuss local Health and Social care issues and how these can be improved locally.
Discussion of ACE Lifestyles and promoting healthy living, Primary Care, and the 5 year plan.
- CCG have confirmed that the move of St Lukes to work alongside CLIC is only a temporary plan until alternative site is found for CLIC.
- Plans – how to have community/GP/metal health services all close to where we live and how to ensure hospitals are secure for the future.
- Ambulance services are going through a transformation – service could cope but going forward will be better equipped and are modelling to this. Decisions have not been made yet – but patients need to be treated in the correct place.
