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.

 


 

 

We are looking for an expert Endoscopist well versed with ERCP, oesophageal stenting and dilation procedures to join our Gastroenterology Team.

As the successful candidate, you will work in the Department of Gastroenterology but will not be expected to take part in the general medical rota. Further opportunities exist for you to develop a sub-speciality such as hepatology. Southend University Hospital performs near 300 ERCP procedures per year and has a well-developed Gastroenterology service.

The Medicine Directorate are proud to be able to offer a personalised supportive induction programme for all newly appointed Consultants which is flexible to candidate’s needs. This includes a welcome tour, time to complete statutory/mandatory training, time to integrate into the team at a pace to suit the candidate and a tailored programme in line with any additional requests from the candidate. We include regular reviews and opportunities to flex the induction programme as required.

You could be building your future in one of the best locations in Britain. Southend is a vibrant seaside town offering a relaxed lifestyle, with a busy local airport and rapid and frequent transport links to London, the Essex countryside and beyond.
