New look for Southend University Hospital website

Southend University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust has launched its new-look website, replacing the outdated one which was developed back in 2004.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 hospital.

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
