Last year the Trust treated:

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.
