"As we go into 2018/19 we welcome the opportunities ahead to build closer working relationships with our colleagues at Basildon and Mid Essex, and to continue improving clinical services for the people of mid and south Essex. As always, we take this opportunity to recognise the passion, commitment and support of our staff and volunteers without whom we could not provide the care with compassion that sits at the centre of our values." Clare Panniker, Chief executive Annual report, 2017-18

As part of the NHS, Southend University Hospital also adheres to the NHS Constitution.

The Constitution was published in January 2009 and it brings together, for the first time, the principles, values, rights and responsibilities that underpin the NHS. It is designed to renew and secure our commitment to the enduring principles of the NHS, making sure that the NHS continues to be relevant to the needs of patients, the public and staff in the 21st century.
