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.




This is an exciting opportunity to work within the Women & Children’s Directorate as a Gynae Oncology Consultant. Across the three sites, Southend, Basildon and Mid Essex, Southend University Hospital will be the Cancer Centre for all cancer treatment for patients in the area and the post holder will be involved in the contribution and building on the current strength and range of surgical expertise currently within the Gynaecological Oncology Cancer Centre.

We are a very popular training unit and we are extremely proud of the good feedback we receive from our trainees. In 2018 we received RCOG award for Top Training unit in the UK for Overall Satisfaction, Gynaecology training, Professional development and within top 10 for Obstetrics training based on the TEF survey. In 2017 we were within the Top 10 training units in the country.   We will consider SKYPE interview for overseas candidate.
