Derbyshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust is the leading provider of mental health, learning disabilities and substance misuse services in Derby city and Derbyshire county. We also provide a wide range of children’s services. We employ over 2,500 staff based in 100 locations across the whole of Derbyshire. Across the county and the city, we serve a combined population of approximately one million people.

Our story
Derbyshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust was established on 1 February 2011 when Monitor, the independent regulator of health services in England, authorised Derbyshire Mental Health Services NHS Trust to become a Foundation Trust.

In April 2011 we became the provider of children’s universal and specialist services for Derby city following a successful tender process.

As part of the Transforming Community Services (TCS) programme, community paediatric services and substance misuse services were also transferred into the organisation from NHS Derby City.

Safe Staffing at Derbyshire Healthcare

It is an NHS England requirement that all Trusts publish thier inpatient nursing staffing levels each day by ward area, showing the Trust's actual and planned staff fill rates. This is in response to the Francis Report, where a commitment was made that all NHS Trusts with inpatient areas would publish full staffing data (by month, by ward area) from May 2014, and then on an on-going monthly basis. The intention is to show how Trusts across the NHS ensure the safety of their staffing levels and skill mix.
