University Hospitals of Derby and Burton NHS Foundation Trust was formed on 1 July 2018 to bring together our five hospitals – in Derby, Burton, Lichfield and Tamworth – to provide the highest quality care to patients across southern Derbyshire and south east Staffordshire.

Our aim is to deliver outstanding care for local people as we bring together the expertise of our 12,000 staff.

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 treat around a million patients a year and more than 6,000 babies are born in our maternity unit annually ­­- an average of 17 births every day. More than 300 operations take place each day in our 36 modern operating theatres. Our busy emergency department sees around 370 patients each day.

We are proud of our teaching hospital status -The Royal Derby incorporates the Derby Graduate Entry Medical School and the School of Health Sciences. We work in partnership with the universities of Derby and Nottingham, educating and training future generations of doctors, nurses and other healthcare professionals.

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.

We pride ourselves on hospital cleanliness 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.
