Anglian Community Enterprise
Update on Coronavirus


A new way of working for ACE

As of today, we are changing the way we are working.  In light of the coronavirus and the latest guidance, especially around social distancing, all our face to face clinics and consultations are under review.

Any patient who is due to have a face to face appointment should not attend and instead will receive a telephone call from the team.  The team will assess the needs of the patient on an individual basis and will work with them to provide the most suitable outcome.  This might be a phone consultation, video links, online resources and in some instances, it will be a face to face visit.

Jayne Hiley, Director of Operations explains: “We are introducing whatever measures we can to ensure the safety of both our patients and staff.  In addition, we are also trying to free up capacity both in terms of staffing and community beds so that we are able to respond to the increased demand in the coming weeks and months.

“So far patients have been very understanding and are keen to help us to help them in these difficult times.

“If I can just reiterate that ACE staff will be contacting patients who have a scheduled appointment; patients do not need to call us.”

The ACE website and social media channels will be updated as and when there is new information. 


Anglian Community Enterprise (ACE) Community Interest Company provides a range of community health and well-being services to the population of North East Essex, with some services also in Suffolk.

We invest 100% of the profits from our day-to-day operations into our services and programmes that support the wider well-being of the communities we serve, many of which are operated by our local voluntary sector partners.

Our guiding principle is our Social Mission, which ensures we use every element of what we do – be it service provision, employment, purchasing or investing - to improve the health and well-being of the local communities in which we work.

3rd June 2020


The NHS North East Essex Clinical Commissioning Group (NEECCG) yesterday took the decision to issue a 12 month “no fault” notice on a contract that provides community services across Colchester and Tendring.

The seven-year Care Closer to Home (CC2H) contract was awarded to Anglian Community Enterprise (ACE) in 2015 to provide services such as community nursing, community therapies, audiology, cardiology and ophthalmology across Colchester and Tendring.  It aimed to focus on the needs of patients and to offer treatment in, or near to, their homes instead of adding pressure to existing sites such as hospitals.

We wanted to give our patients in North East Essex some clarity regarding expectations when it comes to PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) Hopefully this will help our patients understand what to expect when they are visited by our staff.
