Patients and visitors

Welcome to our mid and south Essex hospitals

To keep our patients, visitors and staff safe - and to limit the spread of COVID-19 - we have had to restrict the number of people allowed on to our hospital sites.

We know that it’s hugely important for patients to see their loved ones while they are in hospital, so have done all we can to support people to keep in contact while keeping them as safe as possible.

The information here sets out what visiting is allowed in each area.

We have introduced video appointments to help us carry on seeing patients during the current coronavirus outbreak, click here to read more about this new appointment service.


Letters to loved ones

If you have a message, card, or letter for someone who is currently staying in one of our hospitals - Basildon, Braintree, Broomfield, Southend, Orsett or St Peter's - please contact and we will deliver them for you.
