Residents are invited to workshops to share views and ideas on what can be done to support people to stay healthy and independent
Mid and South Essex Integrated Care Partnership is holding a series of ‘Spring Conversations’ in May 2023. The events will bring together health and care partners with community members to explore; what is working well in health and care in mid and south Essex, the challenges that the NHS and partners face and how we can best work together as partners and alongside our communities to address these. The ’Spring Conversations’ will take place at a variety a community venues in-person and online at the dates and times below. The events are open to anyone who works in, or benefits from health or care services.
Professor Michael Thorne, Chair for Mid and South Essex Integrated Care System said: “Working together with local people and communities is intrinsic to our work. We believe is it vital that residents have regular opportunities to meet with our health and care colleagues and have a real input into the formulation of local priorities and plans to keep people healthy and independent.”
The ‘Spring Conversations’ will focus on the recently published Integrated Care Strategy – turning our ambitions into actions and the Joint Forward Plan* being developed for our NHS partners locally.
