South Essex Partnership University NHS Foundation Trust (SEPT) has been voted one of the top 100 places to work in the NHS and we have an overall CQC rating of 'Good'. We are one of the most successful NHS Foundation Trusts in the country providing integrated care including mental health, learning disability, social care and community services to culturally and economically diverse communities across Bedfordshire and Essex. We employ approximately 4,500 people and work with a wide range of partners to 'provide services that are in tune with you'.
We are a responsive, innovative and dynamic Foundation Trust delivering leading edge health services in a constantly changing environment. We work with a wide range of partner organisations to deliver care and support to people in their own homes and from a number of hospital and community based premises. We have many modern community based resource centres and community facilities to provide local services to local people where possible.
Unlike acute hospital services, Community Health Services, mental health and learning disability services are mainly provided in community settings with defined geographical localities. As a result we operate from various locations across Bedfordshire and Essex.
