We provide community services across South East Essex, West Essex, Bedfordshire and Luton. We also provide integrated care including mental health, learning disability, and social care to culturally and economically diverse communities across Bedfordshire, Essex and Suffolk. We employ approximately 5,500 people and work with a wide range of partners 'Working to Improve Lives'.

We are a responsive, innovative and dynamic Foundation Trust delivering leading edge health services in a constantly changing environment. We work with a wide range of partner organisations to deliver care and support to people in their own homes and from a number of hospital and community based premises. We have many modern community based resource centres and community facilities to provide local services to local people where possible.

Unlike acute hospital services, Community Health Services, mental health and learning disability services are mainly provided in community settings with defined geographical localities. As a result we operate from various locations across Bedfordshire, Essex and Suffolk
