An innovative new pilot project aiming to reduce the number of attendances and admissions to hospital for frail patients in Mid Essex launches today (10 June).
Dr Lisa Harrod-Rothwell, Chair of NHS Mid Essex Clinical Commissioning Group, has announced her intention to resign from the role after three years with the organisation.
ERS Medical has been appointed by Mid Essex Clinical Commissioning Group to deliver non-emergency patient transport services from 1 May 2014. Patients may receive this service if they live in mid Essex and are attending a healthcare appointment or are being discharged from healthcare providers in the area.
Chelmsford Council has just completed a tender exercise for its Clinical Waste collection service and will be changing service providers shortly.
People in mid Essex who are currently eligible, or are found to be eligible, for Continuing Healthcare (CHC) funding from the NHS will now have a greater say in how that money is spent.
