Derbyshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust is the largest provider of mental health, and substance misuse services in Derbyshire, primarily serving the people of Derbyshire and Derby City which has a combined population of approximately one million.
Our Trust focuses on services for those with severe and enduring mental health problems.
These services supplement others (such as those provided in primary care) and are themselves complemented by more specialist services such as secure inpatient services provided from dedicated premises.
We provide a wide range of services which reflect the spectrum of care needs of people with mental health problems. This includes services for individuals who need support from community staff, through to inpatient, crisis resolution and more specialised services.
In addition we provide specialist substance misuse services, and community based learning disability services.
In April 2011 Derbyshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust became the provider of Children’s Universal and Specialist Services for Derby City following a successful tender process.
In addition as part of the Transforming Community Services (TCS) programme, Derbyshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust transferred into the organisation community paediatric services and substance misuse services from NHS Derby City.
