East Suffolk and North Essex NHS Foundation Trust is one of the largest NHS organisations in the region, employing over 10,000 staff and serving a population of almost 800,000 residents. By merging Colchester and Ipswich hospitals in July 2018, we can provide the latest treatments locally, and be in a stronger position to save, grow and strengthen the many hospital and community services our residents rely on.

We are an ambitious trust with a simple vision, to provide the communities we serve with excellent healthcare and build a better future for the people of east Suffolk and North Essex. To help us do this, we will work closely with our local partners to deliver more of the joined-up services and care our residents need.

We want the best staff. You want to make a difference.

For our staff and our patients we have the same philosophy: time matters. This new way of working will remove unnecessary stress and frustration caused by the systems we use and the way we work. We will concentrate on removing or improving the things we do that don't work for our patients. For our staff, this means more time to care for patients and greater opportunities to develop skills and experience.

To be the best, we need to attract and keep the best staff. Our size puts us in a strong position to grow, providing more of the latest services. Our scale provides exciting opportunities for development, innovation, research, education and training. Support from technology and logistics will help us see patients at the right time.

So, if your ambition matches ours, it’s time to work together. 

The Gastroenterology Team at Colchester Hospital are looking to appoint a colleague who is committed to delivering high-quality services across the breadth of gastroenterology and hepatology to join a team of five existing consultants. The department has a reputation for being friendly and supportive with particularly good working relationships. There is capacity for a wide variety of sub-specialty interests to be accommodated and developed.

A regional centre for the National Bowel Screening Programme, the service is currently undergoing a period of change and investment and therefore this is an excellent time to join an established team whilst also playing a integral role in the shaping of local gastroenterological services.

For further information or to arrange an informal visit, please contact Dr Ian Gooding, Clinical Lead, by telephone: 01206 744233 or Moira Welham, General Manager, by email: or telephone: 01473 707653.
