Founded 2009

  • Mission statement

    The Natural Health Service project at Broomfield Hospital is an environmental and social initiative to protect our natural heritage and enhance the Hospital’s green space for our patients, staff, visitors and local community through the community engagement at Broomfield Hospital in Chelmsford, Essex. This programme forms a crucial part of the community engagement workstream in MEHT Sustainability Development Management Plan by Mid Essex Hospital Service NHS Trust, approved by the Board of Directors in April 2014.
    We offer volunteering opportunities for people with various abilities, children, youth and adults to learn lifelong skills and develop confidence through hands-on learning in a range of places in the hospital grounds, including the ancient woodlands and garden areas. We also collaborate with local community service clubs to support their social aims to ‘put something back into the community’.
    We aim to provide a safe and therapeutic green space for our patients to get away from the busy hospital settings and spend time with their family and friends in a natural environment, as well as for the hospital staff to nourish their own health and wellbeing.
