Are you a registered nurse or doctor interested in working with us to support our response to COVID-19? Please contact 

This is an exciting time to join us. The three NHS trusts that currently run Broomfield, Southend and Basildon hospitals are planning to become a new single NHS organisation by mid-2019.

All three hospitals will continue to provide the services our patients use the most. These include outpatient appointments, children's services and day-case surgery. All three hospitals will continue to provide 24/7 A&E and maternity services.

By working as one team we will provide the same high standard of care and services for all of our 1.2m local residents. Using the same equipment, processes and IT systems means services will run more smoothly.  Single leadership, standards and new structures will speed up decision making.  Combined corporate services will reduce duplication and cut running costs. This means more money for front-line services and faster improvements.

Attracting new talent is key to our future and the scale of our organisation will give far more career, training and development opportunities for all our staff.

Our trust would be nothing without our staff. So it goes without saying that when it comes to recruiting new team members, we're looking for the best.

We encourage staff to be innovative, to challenge the "as is" and to always put patients first.

We want staff who will live our trust values every day.

Care with compassion, Working together, Professional and accountable

Our staff need to have patients in their every thought, whether they're in the office helping manage the financial accounts, or working on a ward providing direct patient care.

We know that a strong workforce should be a diverse one, with a mix of skills, strengths and abilities.

We're committed to equal opportunities and try to support staff wherever possible to help them to work flexibly.
