On 9 June 2017, the Boards of Burton Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and Derby Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust approved the Outline Business Case for a proposed merger between the two organisations.
A full Business Case will now be developed, with engagement and input from staff, governors, patients and the public over the coming months.
This full Business Case will then be considered by both Trust Boards later on this year. Further information, and the opportunity to give your thoughts and feedback can be found on the dedicated website:
Your comments, opinions and questions are welcome on the plans for the proposed merger as the work must reflect local views as this moves forward.
The opportunity to submit your views closes on Sunday, 1 October 2017.
