The imminent merger of the three local hospitals; Mid Essex Hospital Services NHS Trust, Southend University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust and Basildon and Thurrock University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust to become the MSE Group, offers the opportunity to create a model for delivering regional Haematology services which ensures the alignment of specialities across the Group to promote standardised working practices and future service developments.

The Trusts are currently working to enable the service to be clinically driven and led by the new MSE Pathology Group model supported with an effective triumvirate management structure and clear lines of governance accountable for timely delivery of high quality, safe and cost effective pathology service all in line with the recommendation made by Lord Carter.

The transformation investment will enable, amongst others:

  • Remove unwarranted variation of services
  • Drive Quality and Governance throughout to improve patient experience and outcomes.
  • Introduce single disciplines within the Pathology group
