New look for Southend University Hospital website
28 May 2012
Southend University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust has launched its new-look website, replacing the outdated one which was developed back in 2004.
The revamped website has now gone live, enabling patients and
hospital visitors to access information about services using more
modern pages with better navigation. Over time this will be further
developed to give greater transparency to how the hospital operates
and how well it is doing.
It will also make it easier for other health care professionals
to find information they need to make patient referrals to the
Chief executive Jacqueline Totterdell said: "I know that, for
many potential employees and patients, a website is often the place
they go immediately when looking at an organisation - first
impressions are important. Changing the website was one of the
first things I wanted to do when I joined the organisation and I am
thrilled at what has been developed.
"Our new site allows us to re-establish a vital online presence,
encourage referrals here and inform and reassure our patients prior
to them coming into our hospital."
The Trust website's URL remains www.southend.nhs.uk
