Provide is a Community Interest Company created on 1st April 2011 to deliver NHS healthcare services across the Mid Essex area, as well as some specialist services in other areas of the country.
We currently employ more than 1,100 staff across a number of sites in a wide range of roles, from front-line patient-care roles (such as nurses, health visitors, therapists, doctors and other healthcare workers), to supporting roles (such as corporate, facilities and estates staff).
We started trading as Central Essex Community Services (CECS), changing to Provide in September 2013.
We are a not-for-profit social enterprise organisation, meaning that any profit or surplus is reinvested into developing and improving our service delivery. We therefore share the values of the NHS towards striving for optimum delivery of healthcare, and indeed many of the benefits available to our staff are equivalent or comparable to those provided by NHS organisations.
We offer Agenda-for-Change terms and conditions of employment and recognise past NHS service when calculating some entitlements. However, working for us also provides some unique advantages, in particular the opportunity to have a say in organisational decision-making by becoming a Member (Owner) or even a Governor of Provide.
