Welcome to your placement in DCHS

During your placement we hope you will discover what a great place Derbyshire Community Health Services NHS Foundation Trust (DCHS) is to work.  We deliver a wide variety of services ranging from community therapy and nursing to end-of-life care, across Derbyshire and in parts of Leicestershire, with more than 1.5 million patient contacts across all services each year.

In November 2014 we were awarded NHS Foundation Trust status which is a fantastic recognition of the great work that goes on across the organisation every day. It means we can continue to develop and improve the out-of-hospital services that we are so committed to, proud of and passionate about.

We recognise the importance of investing in the development of our workforce and acknowledge that newly qualified staff need support to develop confidence as professional individuals, so once you have qualified and have successfully been appointed into a professional role at DCHS, we can offer you a preceptorship programme providing you with the structured support and guidance of an experienced registered practitioner in your workplace.
