Southend University Hospital provides healthcare for around 330,000 people through a comprehensive range of acute services found at the main Prittlewell Chase site and at outlying satellite clinics across the region.

The hospital has several gardens and beautiful green spaces. Some of these gardens are designated for our staff while others for patients and visitors. The gardens offer a serene environment to support people’s physical and mental health.

In 2014, Travel Plan Coordinator Caroline Hang Hong and Green Champion and Anaesthetist Maggie Nicol donated a blossoming plum and a pussy willow as part of the NHS Forest’s ‘Two trees at 2 o’clock’ campaign for NHS Sustainability Day. They were planted by Sue Hardy, Director of Nursing.

In 2023, they helped plant 86 trees at Southend High School for Boys, donated by the NHS Forest. They also planted 30 NHS Forest trees on-site.
