Consultations are central to putting people at the heart of our services.

We are keen to involve local people in decisions which will determine how healthcare is provided in the borough. We actively encourage patients, residents, and community organisations to get involved in and contribute to our work. Taking part in consultations is one way to have your say on issues that affect you. You can find out about other ways you can have your say on our 'Get Involved' pages

As a brief introduction, the definition of health includes various components of a person’s mental or physical condition. Wellbeing is defined as a state of being comfortable, healthy and happy. This strategy will address these broad definitions over the next three years. In doing so, will outline  priorities, to protect people and help people to live longer in good health.

Southend, Essex and Thurrock (SET) Dementia Consultation went live on Monday 15 February for a period of six weeks. The consultation seeks the view of professionals, the public and partners to test if the priorities of the current Southend, Essex and Thurrock Dementia Strategy 2017-2021 are still the right priorities to support citizens, families and carers across Greater Essex who are living with or affected by dementia to live well. The format of the consultation has been developed in order to support our development of the overarching vision for dementia across Greater Essex.

The consultation is in two parts, the first being the consultation on the priorities and the second is understanding of the current situation for dementia and what the future might look like. Please note there is also an easy read version of both parts available online and to download via the link below.
