About our Trust and why you should join us

Employing more than 4,500 staff, our Trust runs Colchester General Hospital and Essex County Hospital and also provides a range of hospital services for the population of north east Essex and south Suffolk.

The Trust has a clear improvement plan to address concerns raised by regulators.

The Trust has made significant investment at Colchester General Hospital, for instance by increasing the capacity and improving patient pathways in the Emergency Department and by building a £25m Radiotherapy Centre.

In addition, the Trust is relocating the services at Essex County Hospital.

At Our Best

To aid promoting its vision, the Trust has a programme called At Our Best to inspire, support and develop all staff to consistently deliver the very best patient experience.

But it isn't just a programme about patients. It is also one that wants to inspire staff and to listen to their concerns.

Make sure you check out the Trust's behaviour standards and values that we expect all staff to adhere to.
