Care Closer to Home went live on 1 April 2016 and brings together a range of clinical services which will be delivered in the community much closer to where people live.
The majority of the orthotic service has been transferred to ACE (Anglian Community Enterprise) as a result.
ACE will now provide an outpatient orthotic service for adults and paediatrics whose GP is with the NE Essex Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG).
Referrals to this service can be made via the Gateway communitygateway.acecic.co.uk and the telephone number is 0300 0032 144
Please note that our Trust provides an outpatient orthotic service for any patient who's GP is outside of NE Essex Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) and who is referred by their GP or a consultant.
