Employing 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 and was recently commended by the CQC on the quality of care provided by staff.

The Trust has made significant investment at Colchester General Hospital, for instance by increasing the capacity and improving patient pathways in the Emergency Department in 2014 and by building a £25m Radiotherapy Centre which opened in June 2014.

In addition, the Trust is aiming to relocate the services at Essex County Hospital by July 2015, either to Colchester General Hospital or into community settings.
