Proposed merger of Burton Hospitals and Derby Teaching Hospitals

The boards of Burton Hospitals and Derby Teaching Hospitals have approved the Outline Business Case for the partnership between the two organisations, recommending a merger as the proposed way forward.

This collaboration is grounded in the core principles of retaining Queen’s as a vibrant district general hospital in Burton, which includes A&E, securing specialist services in Derby for a wider population, and considering the most appropriate use of our community facilities in Lichfield and Tamworth.

For more information about the proposed merger please see below.
