Mid and South Essex Regime publish latest report

This week, the Mid and South Essex Regime published two independent clinical reviews around the reconfiguration of the three main hospitals in Basildon, Chelmsford and Southend.

These reviews, carried out by the East of England Clinical Senate, can be found here. The Senate supports the principles of having a designated specialist emergency hospital for more challenging and complex emergency work, and having a centre of excellence for planned care. However the panel did urge caution around the pace of change.

The next steps will be to narrow down the hospital reconfiguration possibilities to one or two preferred options. This will then be the basis of a detailed business case to be reviewed by national bodies before public consultation later in the year.

The plans are summarised in a public document, 10 things you should know about your local health and care plan.
