Based on 12 ratings for this trust


The Trust provides healthcare services to around 370,000 people from Colchester and the surrounding area of north east Essex.

In addition, we provide radiotherapy and oncology services to a wider population of about 670,000 people across north and mid-Essex.

Our £25m state-of-the-art radiotherapy centre at Colchester General Hospital became operational in June 2014.

The new development, which has been completed within budget, serves the 700,000 population of north and mid Essex and replaces the radiotherapy department two miles away at Essex County Hospital.

Read more about the opening of the Centre on our website:

A new service for major arterial vascular surgery began in 2012 for the 750,000 population of north east Essex, east Suffolk and the Colne Valley. Anyone from that area requiring the most complex vascular surgery, either as an emergency or elective (planned) procedure, now has their operation at a new centre at Colchester General Hospital.
