Care improved despite change:report

HEALTHCARE has improved in Derbyshire in a period of major change for the NHS.

That’s according to NHS Derbyshire County’s annual report for 2010-11.

The organisation, responsible for the healthcare of people in the county, said it had continued to perform effectively in a whole range of measures with finances remaining strong.

Chief executive David Sharp said: “As our annual report shows, we have overseen more treatments, better care and safer services than in any year previously”.

Changes in 2010-11 include the forming of five clinical commissioning groups, which are set to take charge of the NHS from April 2013.
