North East Essex Alliance
The North East Essex Health and Wellbeing Alliance (the Alliance) is a collaboration of commissioners, providers and other system partners working together to transform the health and wellbeing of the population of North East Essex as an integrated system
Our Partners include:
- NHS Suffolk and North East Essex ICB
- East Suffolk and North East Essex Foundation Trust
- Essex County Council
- Tendring District Council
- Colchester City Council
- St Helena
- Essex Partnership University Trust
- GP Primary Choice Ltd

Our approach is for everyone at all stages of their life to be able to Live Well in North East Essex.
We will organise ourselves and define the outcomes we wish to achieve using the 6 domains of the Live Well model:
- Start Well; Giving children the best start in life
- Feel Well; Supporting mental wellbeing
- Be Well; Empowering adults to make healthy lifestyle choices
- Age Well; Supporting people to live safely and independently as they grow older
- Stay Well; Supporting adults with health or care concerns to access support and maintain healthy, productive and fulfilling lives
- Die Well; Giving individuals nearing end of life choice around their care
The Alliance will become the forum for all key commissioning decisions affecting the health and wellbeing of the population of North East Essex. We will move away from traditional commissioning models to a population health-based approach with ever greater integration of health and local authority services, and greater parity between physical and mental health.

2) Implementing an asset-based community model of care, with Primary Care Networks and Integrated Neighbourhood Teams at its heart.
3) Building system resilience so we can support people with an urgent need with the right person in the right place at the right time.
4) Ensuring we take a joined-up approach to planning and delivery of the key building blocks of system integration, including workforce planning, digital, estates, communications and information governance.
