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.




Southend University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust has a history of innovation and is recognized by the Care Quality Commission for its quality of service provision and excellent use of resources. As an organization we aim to recruit those who uphold our values and share our vision which is to provide 'excellent care from excellent people'. 

The successful candidate will train with a friendly team of sonographers currently working in a forward thinking, proactive and clinically lead Radiology Department to provide a highly regarded service. We will provide mentorship to support the requirements of a University based sonography course.

The Universities are screening all applications after their closing date which unfortunately means that a successful interview does not guarantee a place on the course.

Our employees are incredibly proud of their achievements, including being the only Trust within the UK with Local Terms and Conditions, these terms include participation in a Gainshare payment scheme, the ability to buy and sell annual leave, flexible working and long service awards amongst its other unique benefits. We also have a staff benefits scheme with a large range of discounts available and an on-site nursery with discounted prices for staff members.
