Proposed merger information sessions planned for Community Hospitals

Proposed merger information sessions planned for Community Hospitals
29 November 2017

PLANS for the proposed merger of Burton Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and Derby Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust are progressing and the Full Business Case is currently being finalised. 

The aim of the proposed merger is to deliver outstanding care to the patients we serve in Staffordshire and Derbyshire and we are fully committed to our key principles of retaining a vibrant district general hospital in Burton, securing specialist services in Derby for a wider population, and ensuring appropriate and effective use of our community hospitals in Tamworth, Lichfield and Derby.

As you will be aware staff, patients and the public can be assured our proposed merger is about bringing the best of both Trusts together in terms of how each of our organisations can contribute to our future success.

Informal drop in sessions are being held in December at our Community Hospitals where local people can hear more about the plans to merge and ask any questions they may have
