Our partnerships

How do you fit into the NHS structure?

The NHS England website has a useful summary of how the NHS is structured. As an NHS Foundation Trust, we have publicly elected governors and public members. However we are also accountable to other local and national bodies.

Our direction 

We follow and apply the priorities set out by NHS England, such as in the Five Year Forward View and the Long Term Plan.
Within Derbyshire, we are a committed member of the Joined Up Care Derbyshire programme

Our commissioners

Many of our services – particularly our secondary care services – are commissioned by the local NHS clinical commissioning group (CCG). CCGs are made up of GPs, nurses and other professionals and are responsible for commissioning services for the local community.

Our local CCG is NHS Derby and Derbyshire CCG. It was created on 1 April 2019, as a result of a merger of four CCGs:

  • NHS Southern Derbyshire CCG 
  • NHS North Derbyshire CCG 
  • NHS Hardwick CCG 
  • NHS Erewash CCG.  

Several of our services are also commissioned by the public health departments at Derby City Council and Derbyshire County Council. These include our family health services for Derby and our drug and alcohol services for Derby and Derbyshire

Our regulators

As an NHS Foundation Trust, we are regulated by the Care Quality Commission and NHS Improvement.
