Extra public meeting on CCG’s Urgent Care review

Clinicians at the North East Essex Clinical Commissioning Group have announced an additional public meeting later this month to discuss the future of the Walk in Centre in Colchester and the Minor Injury Units in Clacton and Harwich.

They have also rescheduled a meeting in Harwich which had to be cancelled last weekend. The new dates are as follows:


  • Friday 24 February – 7pm-8pm at Stanway Village Hall, Villa Road,
    Stanway, Colchester, CO3 5RH
  • Saturday 25 February – 11am-12noon at Electric Palace Theatre, King’s Quay St, Harwich CO12 3ER.

The meetings will give people a chance to find out more about the CCG’s Urgent Care review and the potential approaches that are being considered.

Lisa Llewelyn, Director of Nursing and Clinical Quality at the CCG, said: “We want to give as many people as possible the chance to find out more about these potential approaches, ask questions and share their views with us.  In response to public demand, we have organised a further public meeting in the Colchester area to make it easier for them to engage with us.

“We would encourage anyone with an interest in this review to come to any of the meetings we have arranged over the coming weeks, to write to us or respond to our online surveys with their feedback.  The CCG’s Board will take the views into account before making a final decision on the proposed changes at the end of May.  No decisions have been made at present and we are very much open to new ideas and views.”

People can give their views on the proposal in a number of ways:


  • An online survey – www.neessexccg.nhs.uk
  • Paper copies of the survey – available at our public meetings or by calling 01206 918653/emailing [email protected]
  • By post to:

North East Essex Clinical Commissioning Group, Freepost RTUH-EUHB-SYRU Aspen House, Stephenson Road, Severalls Industrial Park, Colchester CO4 9QR
