Three Mid and south east Essex acute trusts are operating within a rapidly changing and exciting time of whole system reformation. The Trusts are in partnership as a fast developing hospital network currently comprising of Basildon and Thurrock University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, Mid Essex Hospital NHS Trust and Southend University Hospital NHS FT (the MSB Group).
As part of this acute trust collaboration we are redesigning our hospitals to ensure we meet rising demand with the best quality services. The Pharmacy Department is at the forefront of our service redesign and one of the first departments within MSB to offer the opportunities for developing standardised systems across the three hospitals, re-designing new and ongoing services as the clinical configuration changes in line with the Carter Report. This is all being led by a new Chief Pharmacist working in partnership across the group.
The pharmacy department at Broomfield Hospital (one of the hospitals within the Mid Essex Hospital Trust) is a professional, forward thinking department which gives all staff the opportunity to develop their full potential.
