Case for change

Burton & Derby have a history of successfully working together and during 2016, supported by Governors from both Trusts, discussions took place about developing this relationship further
The case for change is compelling – real patient benefits have been identified by our clinicians
Benefits of a closer collaboration or partnership would include:
  • Continual improvements in care from shared learning and best practice
  • Secure high quality services in Burton longer-term
  • Provide Derby’s specialist services to a larger population
  • Make better use of our community hospitals in Tamworth, Lichfield and Derby
  • Better support the Sustainability & Transformation Plans
  • Reduce unnecessary duplication so that we can focus on providing the best care & services

Our guiding principles are that:

  • Queen’s Hospital will remain a vibrant District General hospital
  • Derby Teaching Hospitals will have access to a larger population across which to plan its services
