Foundation Trust Application

In 2004, we announced plans to apply for Foundation Status and asked you to get involved by signing up as Foundation members.

We would like to thank you for supporting your local hospitals at Basildon and Orsett. We are pleased to report that, as a top performing three-star Trust, we were chosen to become one of the first 10 NHS Foundation Trusts in the country on 1 April 2004.In this section, you can download documents relating to our application.
