Basildon and Thurrock University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust provides:
- an extensive range of acute medical services at Basildon University Hospital
- outpatient clinics, diagnostics and a day surgery unit at Orsett Hospital (Orsett also houses a minor-injuries unit)
- diagnostic services (x-ray and phlebotomy) at the St. Andrew's Centre, Billericay
We primarily serve the 400,000 population of Basildon and Thurrock in south west Essex, plus residents of the neighbouring districts of Brentwood and Castle Point.
In addition, we also provide diagnosis and treatment for people with cardiovascular (heart) and respiratory (lung) diseases at The Essex Cardiothoracic Centre, based at Basildon University Hospital. The Essex Cardiothoracic Centre serves people from the county of Essex and beyond, and is amongst the most modern centres of its kind in the country, boasting the latest equipment and technology. The centre provides a 'primary percutaneous coronary intervention service', where people from across the county who have had a heart attack are brought directly to the Essex Cardiothoracic Centre to have stents fitted to repair constricted coronary arteries.
