Colchester General Hospital
East Suffolk and North Essex NHS Foundation Trust was formed in summer 2018 through the merger of the two NHS trusts that ran Colchester and Ipswich hospitals. As a new NHS organisation, we offer an exciting range of opportunities here in the east of England. We would like you to help us provide excellent healthcare for the communities we serve in east Suffolk and North Essex.
The new organisation employs 10,000 staff working across the region in hospitals, clinical, the community and you home. Our teams run services from nine sites in Colchester and Ipswich hospitals and in the community.
