Trust given a clean bill of health

14 June 2017

NHS Improvement has recently confirmed that Derbyshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust is now free of all former licence breaches.  

The Trust’s regulator has issued a certificate of compliance, which follows significant progress in a number of areas including Board leadership, governance structures and processes and improvements in HR related performance.

This decision follows a recent, independent assurance review of the Trust, undertaken in respect of improvements to the Trust’s governance arrangements and HR related functions.  

Ifti Majid, Acting Chief Executive expressed his delight with the outcome, saying:

“This is a significant milestone for the Trust.  I am immensely proud of the improvements we have made over the last year and wish to thank our staff and stakeholders for their support, contribution and ongoing commitment.  We are committed to embedding these improvements into our everyday ways of working  and I look forward to further building on this success, by ensuring we provide the best possible care to local people.”

This certificate of compliance also results in the Trust being moved into segment 2 under NHS Improvement’s Single Oversight Framework. This framework groups Trusts according to the level of support they need across a number of different criteria.  Segment 2 confirms there are no longer any significant concerns with the Trust and reflects the rating of the majority of NHS provider trusts.
