The Royal Derby Hospital is the newest hospital in the East Midlands. 

Officially opened in April 2010 by Her Majesty The Queen and His Royal Highness The Duke of Edinburgh, we now care for more than 180,000 people as inpatients, outpatients, emergency patients and day cases. This equates to around 625,000 visits from patients each year.

Our new hospital will bring many extra benefits to the 600,000 patients who come to us for their care every year. With the first roof-top helipad in the East Midlands, state-of-the-art intensive care facilities and enhanced services for stroke and cancer care, to name a few, we always put patients at the heart of everything we do.

At Derby Teaching Hospitals we pride ourselves on hospital leanliness and our new facilities will put us in the best possible position to maintain our high standards. We are also improving privacy for patients with more than 200 single en-suite rooms and 4-bed bays for patients on our wards.

From now on, all of our specialist services will be under one roof. The design for the new building allows different departments to be located together to reduce the time patients spend in the hospital. We can provide more one-stop clinics and more day-case treatments which will reduce the number of visits patients need to make to hospital and make coming to here easier for everyone.

Investment in the latest technology will continue to
bring our services to the cutting edge of medical
advances and our highly skilled staff are proud to be providing services as efficiently as possible.

Our vision is to build on our achievements and we will take great pride in caring for our patients in a clean, safe and technically advanced environment.


London Road Community Hospital continues to play an important role for our patients. There are over 60 departments, 700 staff and 184,000 patients who will be treated there every year.
