Better Care Together Thurrock is a new way of working that will see more effective health and care which focuses on the whole person and their needs while delivering care closer to home.
Organisations from across health and care in Thurrock have come together to bring about this more streamlined and joined-up approach. This alliance of commissioners, providers, and voluntary services include:
- Basildon and Thurrock University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust
- Essex Partnership University Foundation Trust
- NELFT NHS Foundation Trust
- NHS Thurrock Clinical Commissioning Group
- Thurrock Council
- Thurrock CVS
Together, we are working on new ways of meeting the needs of Thurrock residents through the services we provide. At the heart of this approach is helping people to stay healthier and independent for longer through preventing ill health, and when people do need extra help, ensuring that support comes from within the local neighbourhood whenever possible. The diagram below summarises the main aims and priorities for our new way of working.
Our programme of change has already begun in Tilbury and Chadwell where new teams and professionals are working with the existing services already in place. We will be rolling out the changes to other parts of Thurrock very soon.
