Help your hospital

We are incredibly grateful for the offers of support we have received from our local community wanting to help care for our frontline staff and patients during this difficult time.

We are incredibly grateful for the offers of support we have received from our local community wanting to help care for our frontline staff and patients during this difficult time.

To enable them to continue supporting our hospitals, in a safe and co-ordinated way, we have put in place some specific contact lines for members of the public who wish to donate gifts in kind, funds, staff benefits or to volunteer:

Gifts in kind

To help us keep both patients and staff safe we ask that you refrain from coming to the hospital. If you would like to contribute by donating gifts in kind please contact the charity team on:

fundraising@southend.nhs.uk /  fundraising@meht.nhs.uk or call: 01268 524900 x2897

Donations

Donations will aid the wellbeing of staff through this difficult time and provide vital equipment needed to support our patients.

Volunteering

Unfortunately, due to the current coronavirus pandemic, we can now only offer a very limited range of roles for volunteers at Southend Hospital. And at the moment we have enough volunteers to fill these roles. 

We apologise to those of you who have applied to become a volunteer and who may be still waiting. We are hopeful that we will be able to introduce new roles over the coming weeks. If this happens, we should be able to get some applicants already in the recruitment pipeline started. 

In the meantime, however, we regret that we cannot take on any new applications. 

Staff benefits

If you are a local business who would like to offer an NHS discount or benefit please contact Caroline Porter on:  01702 3855085 or email stay@southend.nhs.uk

 

We are prioritising employment of clinical and medical staff to keep our hospitals safe. 

If you are specifically clinical or medical please email mse.recruitment@nhs.net

If you are kindly volunteering, please email voluntary.services@meht.nhs.net

Non-clinical or non-medical jobs will be advertised via NHSJobs.
