Our Journey

What sort of hospital do we want to be?

We have six objectives to achieve our aim.

For our patients & our community we will:

For our hospital & our staff we will:
4. Support and develop our staff;
5. Manage our money wisely, foster innovation and become more efficient to improve quality of care
6. Provide an infrastructure to support delivery.

At Chesterfield Royal our Proud to CARE ethos is at the heart of how we run the hospital – looking after our patients & taking care of our staff:


  • Compassionate care delivered with professionalism and a positive, friendly attitude

Nursing, midwifery and care staffing review

In April 2014, our fourth staffing review paper was presented to the Board of Directors - as part of our on-going commitment to providing high-quality, safe and compassionate care on our wards.

This paper included some clear recommendations for the children’s and adult wards - to make sure we have the right staff, with the right skills, in the right place, at the right time.

As a result of this review, the Board made a decision to invest an extra £1.7Million in staffing. You can read about this investment here.

The Board paper and full details of the review can be downloaded here:
