Chesterfield Royal Hospital
As North Derbyshire’s only acute hospital, and responsible for the care and treatment of 390,000 people, working in partnership with other local organisations is really important to Chesterfield Royal.
As well as joining up with NHS and social care organisations to improve the care it provides, Chesterfield Royal Hospital also tries to support local business where it can.
The meals cooked on site in the hospital’s café for example are created with food that’s sourced within a fifty mile radius. It’s just one of the ways it can can help local businesses to grow and show people that it is proud to support local suppliers.
Nowadays Chesterfield Royal is also North Derbyshire’s largest employer – there are more than 3,900 staff working at the hospital, in its GP surgeries, at its maternity bases and more.
Chief Executive, Simon Morritt said: “We think we have a vital role within Destination Chesterfield – and as a Champion we can also help to support the promotion of the town as a great place for business, tourism and leisure. After all, if we can help Chesterfield to grow and prosper it can only help the hospital to attract great staff who also want to come to live and work here.”
