Here at Southend University Hospital we strive to provide high quality care for every patient, every time.
We 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
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.
The Hospital@Home service is expanding!
Due to the joining of the 3 hospitals the Hospital@Home service is to be delivered across all areas. We are looking to recruit a number of senior nurses to join our new service at Southend Hospital.
If you enjoy holistic one to one care, with the time to really support your patients, then this is the job for you.
The service provides a range of treatments coordinated by the hospital, but delivered in the patients’ homes. These treatments range from IV antibiotics to wound care and monitoring, incorporating new innovative technologies, for which you will receive training for.
Please note that although you will be based at Southend Hospital you will be employed by Basildon Hospital.
