About us

Our three original hospital trusts, Basildon and Thurrock University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, Mid Essex Hospitals NHS Trust and Southend University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust officially merged on 1 April 2020 to become Mid and South Essex NHS Foundation Trust.

This was the culmination of more than four years of collaborative working which had already led to better clinical care for our patients, more career opportunities for our staff, and improved working with the wider health and care system in Mid and South Essex.

With our new trust fully integrated with a new board in place, and new governance arrangements. The Constitution of our new trust can be found here.

Our surgical and clinical teams have been working tirelessly during the Covid-19 outbreak, demonstrating the amazing teamwork across our hospitals.

As we start to plan elective work across our hospitals, we will continue to focus on caring for the patients who need us, providing top class care to the people of mid and south Essex, as one of the largest NHS Trusts in the country.
