Mid Essex Clinical Commissioming Group (CCG)
The Mid Essex CCG is in the process of introducing a HOME FIRST service for patients leaving hospital, which is briefly explained below.
The hyperlink below this article directs you to the page of the Mid Essex CCG website which gives more information.
In 2018, the CCG will be starting a Home First service that will offer more people the opportunity to rehabilitate and recover at home with support from healthcare professionals like physiotherapists and nurses.
If the option of going home from hospital is not right for the patients, other places in the community can be offered including an enhanced nursing home or community hospital beds.
At the same time as starting a Home First service, the CCG will also make some changes to the way surgical theatres and beds are used at Braintree Community Hospital. We will be looking to provide Orthopaedic surgery at the hospital and change the way beds are used on Courtauld ward to support this surgery
The 'Care Quality Commission' visited the William Fisher Medical Centre on 11th August 2016 to complete its first audit of this practice.
The overall rating was Good with an outstanding rating for the care of people with long term conditions.
