Overview

We provide:

  • an extensive range of acute medical and surgical services at Basildon University Hospital
  • outpatients, diagnostics and a day surgery unit at Orsett Hospital
  • diagnostic services (x-ray and phlebotomy) at the St. Andrew’s Centre, Billericay

We primarily serve the 405,000 population of Basildon and Thurrock in south west Essex, plus residents of the neighbouring districts of Billericay and Brentwood and Castle Point. 

Last year the Trust treated: 

  • 77,500 inpatients
  • 300,000 outpatients
  • More than 103,000 A&E patients

In addition, The Essex Cardiothoracic Centre based at Basildon University Hospital, serves the county of Essex and beyond.  Amongst the most modern centres of its kind in the country, it provides specialist diagnosis and treatment for people with cardiovascular (heart) and respiratory (lung) diseases, and boasts the latest equipment and technology. 

Despite our size – around 4,500 employees – we are very much part of our community.  All staff and another 10,000 people from our local community have signed-up to become trust members and have a real say in how things are run.  Members can nominate and elect public governors or stand to serve on the board of governors themselves.
