HEALTH LEADERS SERVE NOTICE ON COMMUNITY SERVICE CONTRACT

HEALTH LEADERS SERVE NOTICE ON COMMUNITY SERVICE CONTRACT

3rd June 2020

Background

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.
