We are at the forefront of moves towards service integration and work closely with other professionals including GPs, district nurses, midwives, dementia services and drug and alcohol services to improve the delivery of health services and ensure a positive patient experience. We have received national praise for our work around mental health and our innovative service for care home patients.

The borough has seven miles of award-winning beaches and coastal nature reserves. There are more than 80 parks and green spaces and 14 conservation areas. The borough is also home to the longest leisure pier in the world. Around six million tourists come to Southend each year, generating income revenues estimated at £350 million.

Southend CCG are part of a group of CCGs who have announced major plans to improve GP services – and bring more doctors to mid and south Essex.

The primary care strategy aims to:

  • Make it quicker and easier for patients to be seen locally by NHS professionals
  • Reduce pressure on GPs so they can focus on patients with the greatest need
  • Improve the recruitment of GPs and other healthcare professionals to mid and south Essex

Our Staff Say

"My workplace is local to home, and working in semi-rural Essex delivers a different set of clinical challenges compared to inner city medicine."
Emergency Care Practitioner | Specialist Paramedic

I like the autonomy and the ability to influence your practice and make a difference with patients on a daily basis. I would not do another job in nursing now after being a practice nurse.
