Welcome to the Education Department    

Welcome to the Education Centre web pages. These are to help you access information about the facilities available within the Education Centre, training and development opportunities and to share information to develop best practice.

The Education Centre staff provide education and training opportunities for all staff employed within Chesterfield Royal Hospital NHS Foundation Trust. This includes all professional staff groups and those providing ancillary support to enable the Trust to deliver its core business of providing health care. The team also provides support for a number of professions external to the Trust, based within the wider Derbyshire Health and Social Care community.

Through these web pages we hope to provide relevant information to enable Trust staff to access information, allowing them to make appropriate use of the development opportunities and education available. Integral to the work within the Education Centre are Knowledge Management Services and Research and Development. Links to the Research and Development pages and Library Service pages for the Trust are made available through this site.

We would encourage all staff to visit our pages and would welcome any feedback on these web pages. Please direct any comments or ideas to: Elaine Woodhall-Windle, Education Administration Manager on 01246 512211 or ext: 2211.

The Education and Workforce Development teams are led by:

  • Dr Maxine Simmons - Head of Practice and Professional Development
  • Dr Iain Dods - Director of Medical Education
