University Hospitals of Derby and Burton NHS Foundation Trust (UHDB) is one of the largest NHS Foundation Trusts in the country. We have over 13,000 staff providing care across 48 specialties, spanning five hospitals (including one of the biggest Trauma and Orthopaedics Specialties in the country and Children’s services at both Derby and Burton Hospitals) which care for more than one million patients each year and serves a population of a similar size across South Derbyshire, South East Staffordshire and beyond.
The Trust has five hospitals across the region, with the largest being the Royal Derby Hospital and the second largest being Queen’s Hospital Burton, covering the historic Peak District, Southern Derbyshire and East Staffordshire. Our Community Hospitals are Sir Robert Peel Community Hospital in Tamworth, Samuel Johnson Community Hospital in Lichfield and London Road Community Hospital in Derby. In addition, we have staff at four other clinical sites across Derbyshire and Staffordshire.

We are on a journey to become a truly inclusive and diverse organisation and it is imperative that our Board reflects the communities we serve. We are actively looking for applications from likeminded people who can support our ambition. We welcome applications from women, people from the local black and minority ethnic communities, and disabled people who we know are under- represented in chair and non-executive roles.
