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.




Our Paediatric department is currently recruiting for two enthusiastic, dedicated and experienced Clinical Fellows ST4+ to join their team. Ideally, you will have a minimum of one years NHS experience at registrar level.

Our Neptune Children’s Ward was commissioned in May 1995 and is situated in a wing of nucleus design. Neptune Children’s Unit has 27 beds and a seven bedded Paediatric Assessment Unit for triage assessment and treatment. The PAU has an annual throughput of approximately 4,000 children.

On the Children’s Ward elective, emergency and day-stay surgery is accommodated as well as medical emergency and day-stay admissions. There are three six bedded rooms, a four cot nursery divided into separate cubicles and remaining beds are within side-rooms. There are several high dependency beds on the ward to enable sick children to be managed locally where possible.

Excellent links are in place with Great Ormond Street and other tertiary centres, many providing visiting Consultants for joint specialist multidisciplinary clinics.

Southend University Hospital is a POSCU Level 1 centre providing shared care for cancer children with Great Ormond Street Hospital. Paediatric Community Nurses give chemotherapy at home.

Our Level 2 Neonatal Unit opened in October 1995 as part of the centralisation of acute services at Southend. There are 18 cots, of which two are intensive, three high dependency and 14 special care cots. The Unit is very well equipped to a high standard and there are excellent facilities for both staff and parents.

The trust is dedicated to supporting and developing trainees in their career choice and has an excellent Postgraduate Medical Centre which carries a full programme of events and offers access to a Medical Library.

Please refer to the attached job description and person specification for further information.

We look forward to reviewing your application.
