Working Together for a Healthy West Essex

AdobeStock 94976130

The West Essex CCG area covers the three neighbouring geographical districts of Harlow, Epping Forest and Uttlesford and serves a population of around 315,000 people. We have 32 GP practices spread across the west Essex area, all of which are only a short distance from London.

Journeys from the area’s western edge in Epping are on eight stations on the Central Line and with the opening of the Queen Elizabeth Line shortly mean trips are getting faster to the centre of the capital. One of London’s major airports, Stansted, is in Uttlesford and the M11 motorway runs parallel along the path of the three districts.

Our aim is simple – we want to work with the hospitals, community teams and GPs who provide care locally to make sure that the people of Epping Forest, Harlow and Uttlesford receive the best care possible and live longer, healthier, happy lives. We will all work to make sure that all west Essex residents receive high quality, safe and accessible health services and that, over time, we narrow the gap in life expectancy between the richest and poorest people.

Epping Forest District

Bordering London, the twin green swaths of Epping Forest and the Lee Valley provide natural routes into the district and access to its history and heritage as well as shopping and café culture. It is easily accessible via eight tube stations on the Central Line plus four exits on the M11 and M25 motorways. You will find unspoilt countryside with delightful towns, villages and hamlets plus hidden treasures, such as the oldest wooden church in the world, the CAMRA pub of Essex, the place they made the nation’s gunpowder and explosives, and the closest heritage steam railway to the Capital.



Harlow is one of the original New Towns (1947) and designed by world-renowned architect Sir Frederick Gibberd. Set on the Essex/Hertfordshire border near the River Stort, the town was designed to respect and complement the natural landscape. Green and open space is at the heart of the town.

Harlow offers everything from arts, culture and theatre to sport, parks and nature reserves. You can visit the Playhouse Theatre, the Museum of Harlow, the Town Park, the Gibberd Garden and their outstanding collection of public sculptures ranging from Auguste Rodin and Henry Moore to Elizabeth Frink and Barbara Hepworth.

These are just some of Harlow’s highlights. 35 minutes by train from central London, within 20 minutes of London Stansted Airport and close by the M11 motorway,

Uttlesford is a thriving, predominantly rural district in north-west Essex encompassing Saffron Walden, Great Dunmow, Stansted Mountfitchet and Thaxted and about 100 villages and hamlets in between. It is home to London Stansted Airport and major road and rail networks with links to London to the south and historic city of Cambridge to the north.
