In line with ambitions to transform and improve how services work for local people, we are excited to share our plans to transform, innovate and better tailor weight management services to individuals living in mid and south Essex.
By supporting the development of one of the first a truly integrated and innovative weight management service transformations in England we want to:
- Reduce unnecessary barriers to accessing support
- Deliver a smoother, more personalised patient experience of weight management services
- Have a clear focus on what success will look like, focussed of delivering defined outcomes and constantly assessing our progress at individual, population and system level, including impact on tackling inequalities with shared accountability across all key partners in health and care
To help deliver and support this work we have entered into a partnership with Novo Nordisk to combine resources to redesign how weight management service can best meet local needs. Novo Nordisk has consequently provided financial support to fund two dedicated roles within our prevention team and provide support towards independent facilitation support.
