Provider Forums

Purpose of the forums

Provider Forums are a networking opportunity for Adult Social Care Providers and Essex County Council to meet both in-person and on-line at a local level. They are free to attend and provide the opportunity to discuss operational issues, system and council updates, have topical discussions, Q&A sessions and for providers to have their say. Representatives from system partners, including Health, attend the forums for a whole system approach to issues raised.  

Do you have any comments, questions or suggestions for the forums? If so please contact us MarketPortal@essex.gov.uk 


Frequency of the events

The forums are held at a local level (by quadrant) and take place three times a year, either on-line or in-person at changing venues within each area. 

Chaired by ECA and ECC the forums are attended by colleagues from Commissioning and Adult Social Care, and system partners such as Health. Each forum is tailored to their locality whilst keeping a consistency for key information across all areas.
