Our departments and services

We continually strive to introduce new services to help our patients recover faster and hopefully leave hospital sooner. For example, we’ve introduced:

A specialist falls clinic, which investigates and identifies the reasons for falls in our patients over 65 who visit A&E, and reduces the risks of them falling again.

A new 14-bed dedicated wound management unit, which is gaining a reputation nationally for excellence. Our wound management team care for patients who have diabetic foot ulcers and infected or complicated wounds.

Improvements to the eye units at Southend. This means patients attending for an appointment get seen and treated more quickly.

Pioneering surgery for patients with incontinence problems, previously only available at London centres.
