Statement on planned public rally in Burton about proposed merger between Burton Hospitals and Derby Teaching Hospitals
26 July 2017

The planned merger of our two organisations is something we feel strongly will benefit local people in Burton. It will enable us to sustain and improve the quality of core NHS services at Queen’s Hospital, including A&E, help us to make better use of our community hospitals in Lichfield and Tamworth and will provide better access to high quality specialised services.

We want to provide as much information as possible about the planned merger and people can access a full, unabridged copy of the Outline Business Case on our joint website at www.burtonderbycollaboration.co.uk, which has been available since it was approved in June. For full transparency, the plans are explained here in detail, along with answers to the frequently asked questions people have had so far, including questions about workforce and core clinical services.

We are also providing a questionnaire for local people to fill out, which is available on the website at: http://www.burtonderbycollaboration.co.uk/getting-involved.

This feedback will be used in the development of the Full Business Case.
