Essex Success Regime: progress update

Ambulance line up blue sky

Staff in mid and south Essex are being briefed on the latest news about the Essex Success Regime, one of three programmes in the country which are part of the NHS Five Year Forward View.

It is overseen by NHS England, NHS Trust Development Authority and Monitor, and is a blueprint for the NHS to take decisive steps to secure high quality, joined-up care. It sets out the challenges facing health and care nationally and how radical change is needed to sustain services into the future and improve care for patients.

The other two regimes are in Devon and Cumbria which were also identified as areas in the country where there are deep-rooted, systemic pressures. The overall aim is to improve health and care where these systems are managing financial deficits or issues of service quality or both.

Every local health and care system must have a Sustainability and Transformation Plan, and this is what the Essex Success Regime will facilitate; it only affects two areas of the county and staff can view a briefing paper here or ask local management any questions about the ambulance service input.  

It is too early at this stage to think about what the implications might be for EEAST.

For further information on plans for the NHS and its transformation please see the latest NHS planning guidance for 2016/17.
