Mid Essex Hospital Services NHS Trust

Mid Essex Hospital Services NHS Trust was established as an NHS Trust in 1992. The Trust is an acute hospital with over 800 beds providing local elective and emergency services to people living in and around the districts of Chelmsford, Maldon and Braintree. The Trust enjoys a strong clinical reputation with provision of a wide range of services including A&E, emergency medicine and surgery, elective surgery in most specialties, and maternity and paediatric services. It also hosts regional plastics, head and neck and upper gastrointestinal (upper GI) surgical services and a supra-regional burns service.
In 2014, the Trust Board adopted a Sustainable Development Management Plan (SDMP) which focusses on seven workstream areas including Travel, Procurement, Buildings, Adaptation, Workforce, Models of Care and Community Engagement. We are committed to improving our corporate social responsibility ideas and we have adopted challenging targets to reduce carbon emissions and improve our ways of working to ensure a more sustainable future.
We actively participate in the annual Good Corporate Citizenship Assessment (GCCA), and we have seen a significant improvement since 2014.
