How Covid-19 shaped our future
When Covid-19 reached Mid and South Essex, our immediate reaction was to harness innovation from across our teams and services. There was much we didn’t know – but we did have skills that helped us find our way. We knew how to come together and collaborate, how to share and test new ideas, how to learn and adapt.
This approach helped us build our resilience from the outset. But it also left an unexpected legacy: stronger Foundations for our Future, with reconfigured services that better meet our needs, smarter use of technology and data, smoother processes and a more cohesive staff team.
Covid has taken its toll on us all. But today, the Trust is stronger than ever. In these stories, six of our staff describe their journey through the pandemic, and what they learned along the way.
