This section contains information to help you during your stay at Essex County Hospital. We have tried to pull together information that will help put you at ease and explain what will happen to you during your visit.
The information comes in several ways - general information about the hospital, what to bring, what to expect, how to find us; and information about the department, clinic or ward you will be visiting.
If the information you seek is not here please call the clinic or department using the contact details on the appointment letter you were sent.
At the Trust we have matrons on duty 24 hours per day. If you have a concern about nursing care received or are concerned about what you should do after being in hospital please contact one of the matrons.
If you have questions about anything that is not included here please contact our PALS office, as there are other sources of information available.
