Benefits for Patients and Staff

Like much of the NHS across the country, both Hospital Trusts are facing a number of challenges relating to finance, staff and increasing demand for our services. Despite the passion, commitment and hard work of our staff these challenges cannot be solved in isolation. Doctors and nurses at the Trusts have identified some real benefits for patients and staff of working more closely together, which are significant and exciting. Collaboration would allow us to:
  • Share learning and best practice
  • Secure high quality services in Burton
  • Provide Derby’s specialist services to a larger population
  • Make better use of our community hospitals in Tamworth, Lichfield and Derby
  • Reduce unnecessary duplication

As our discussions continue, we will share more examples of how we think we can bring real benefits to our patients and opportunities for staff.
