I have had to use this Hospital various times over the last few years, I have always had faith and confidence in the NHS (Its the very best Health Service in the world bar none. Have always had a great and helpful treatment here with a care service and dedicated staff on hand to answer any questions I might have had. considering the pressure the health service is under at the moment they all do a fantastic service to the community, I cannot thank them enough

During my treatment for breast cancer i attended Southend hospital for my chemotherapy, PICC line insertion and radiotherapy. I was treated very well by professional and friendly staff. The chemo unit was NOT the dreadful experience i thought it would be, it was excellent. Apart from the problems parking (my radiotherapy was often completed before my husband had parked the car) I cannot think of any aspect which could be improved.

I have had to use Southend Hospital many times, always find the staff helpful and kind. Although extremely busy, as everywhere in NHS nowadays, I always feel well cared for.

The appointments system simply does not work. No consideration given to waiting times defined in the NHS constitution. Complete lack of contact.

Unfortunately due to an ongoing viral/brnchitas condition going on for 5 weeks I was admitted for treatment at this hospital. From A and E to the ward I could not have received better treatment even if I had gone private. This covers treatment from ambulance service, cleaners, porters, nurses and finally doctors who are all running around none stop.This is a great unique service which we should treasure. I know there are problems with it getting over crowded and hopefully this can be sorted out sooner rather than later. There are equally lots of patients who are treating staff and doctors in a really rude manner. I even had a top doctor helping to move my bags to another room for me whilst waiting for transport home. You treat people with respect and I found that they equally reciprocate especially in Eleanor Hobbs ward. Thank you.

My GP sent me to the surgical assessment unit in a hurry with a suspected inflamed appendix. The two nursing sisters and the consultant who initially dealt with me were brilliant. My appendix had burst and was contained by an abscess. I was admitted and spent five days in the hospital while they worked to reduce the infection and inflamation. I was fitted with a drain and eventually discharged. It was my first time in hospital for decades and I was so very impressed with everyone I encountered, from the surgeon Mr Wright, to the friendly cleaners and catering staff. The nurses were fantastic. Very careful and considerate. I spend time on Chalkwell ward and Stambridge ward. I think also Hockley ward, it is a bit of a blur. The staff at Southend Hospital were brilliant. Thank you.

I was hospitalised 9 years ago for three months on George Foster Taylor Ward, my surgeon was the wonderful Casper Tsokodyi, with out his determination I would not be here today. During my stay I was on High Dependency and GFT Ward and was treated with professionalism, kindness and care from all staff. I will always be grateful to them all for saving my life.

In the very busy environment of an eye department we expected the two stage process of initial consultation and eye drops to be separated by some time from the final detailed eye scan. The time between can be quite long so I recommend having food before your visit if possible as consuming a snack has to be outside which can break up what seems like an interminable time. The final consultation can seem a bit hurried but has to be seen in the context of there being very many others waiting to be seen. Slightly disappointed that a 3rd stage .. Treatment has to be put off for 2 weeks but there may be reasons not explained to us at the time. Glad to be able to get so much done in a day though. Thank you NHS.
