In 2017 several practices across North East Essex
took the bold and decisive step to dissolve the traditional practice
Partnership model by joining together to form one of very few ‘at scale’ Partnerships
in the UK – The Colte Partnership was born. This collaborative decision was taken with a fundamental emphasis on the sustainability of better patient access, improved patient outcomes and excellent patient satisfaction. The challenges faced cannot be underestimated, considering the ever-growing strain on primary care brought about by continual population growth, a depleting workforce and significant financial constraints.
Following the Covid-19 pandemic, in 2022, Partners agreed a five-year vision. Our Strategic Plan will be delivered against a backdrop of a well-defined Mission and Vision, while maintaining our core Values.
The plan maps out the journey that the Partnership will be taking over the next 5 years to achieve its Vision.
Our strategy has been developed collaboratively with the aim of being leaders in reshaping primary care and creating a sustainable legacy for future colleagues and patients.

A Strong Voice in the Health & Social Care System
