Recognising that greater collaboration across this part of Essex is required to solve long standing financial, quality and operational challenges, agreement was reached in a number of stages since 2017 to work in an increasingly collaborative way between the Trusts to undertake the reconfiguration of clinical services, supported by an "in common" governance and leadership structure.
