Getting here

Getting here by public transport | By bus or train

We have put together a webpage about getting to Essex County Hospital by public transport.

Getting here by car

Because of the pressure on car park spaces, we would strongly encourage you to explore alternative ways of travelling to our hospitals. Find out more about car parking (including concessions).


Transfer of wards and departments

The Radiotherapy Department transferred in 2014 to Colchester General Hospital.

Rhys Lewis and Jefferson wards moved in 2014 to West Bergholt Ward at Colchester General Hospital.
