About Chesterfield Royal Hospital FT
Chesterfield Royal Hospital NHS Foundation Trust is an acute Trust providing healthcare and community services for more than 400,000 people across Derbyshire.
We employ more than 4,500 colleagues across Chesterfield Royal Hospital, Primary Care and DSFS (Derbyshire Support and Facilities Services) and we also have some fantastic volunteers supporting our services.
In May 2020 we received a Good overall rating from the CQC (Care Quality Commission) with levels of outstanding practice seen in Urgent and Emergency care services, Medical Care (including older people's care) and Surgery.
In the latest Staff Survey (2021), 73.7% of our workforce told us they are enthusiastic about their job, and 69.7% of colleagues told us they recommend Chesterfield Royal Hospital FT as a place to work – 11.3% higher than the national acute Trust median score.
In 2021 our Freedom to Speak Up approach received ‘Highly Commended’ in the annual HSJ Awards.
Our ‘Together as One’ strategy focuses on exceptional patient care delivered by exceptional people, and supports our people, communities and partners working together to provide patient care we can all be proud of.
We are working closely with our partners through Joined Up Care Derbyshire, Integrated Care System, which brings together health and social care organisations across Derbyshire with the ambition to provide the best care and services for people and make them as efficient and effective as possible.
