We are the North East Essex Health & Wellbeing Alliance
We are a collective of government, healthcare and voluntary organisations, we work together to improve the health and wellbeing of our communities.
Why An Alliance?
We recognise that a wide number of factors can influence a person’s wellbeing. As you can see from this diagram, adapted from the University of Wisconsin Population Health Institute’s County Health Ranking model (2010), health care only accounts for 20% of a person’s wellbeing.
Working in an alliance way ensures that different partners can work together across organisational and financial boundaries to address the causes of the causes. There is no quick fix but by coming together collaboratively and taking a preventative, rather than reactive approach, we have the best chance of success.
North East Essex has a fast-growing population of over 355,000.
From bustling coastal towns to rural countryside villages. Our communities carry their own unique identities and vary greatly in demographic and need. As an Alliance, we work together to support our neighbourhoods to achieve the goals that are important to them.
This is how the neighbourhoods have been zoned in north east Essex. As far as possible they follow ward and district boundaries, are sympathetic to the new primary care groupings and cover populations of 50,000. Each has a multi-disciplinary team who are empowered and supported to deliver the Live Well outcomes within their area.
