Mid and South Essex NHS Foundation received £10.2 million in 2020/21 and £5.3 million in 2021/22 for Southend Hospital through the programme to upgrade accident and emergency departments. The Trust was also awarded £118 million in 2017 for a scheme to transform acute and out-of-hospital services locally, including at Southend Hospital, following public consultation. The Trust is currently developing its full business case and a request for early funding is currently under review. Full funding will be made available once the business case has been approved.
