  • Tuesday 14 May at the Post Mill Centre
  • Wednesday 22 May at Belper Football Club

The content of the days will include informative and interactive sessions that aim to update you with new developments that support care, your professional development and puts you ‘in the shoes’ of patients and carers. There will also be market stalls that link to the key themes of the event. Please click here to see the draft agenda for the day.  

If you can’t join us in the day, join us for our evening film premiere
As a special and unique DCHS event, we’re holding an evening film premiere! We’re proud and  privileged to be the first NHS organisation to obtain the rights to show the  film ‘Island’. This film by Steven Eastwood has been nominated for a British Film award and tells the  poignant story of four end of life care patients. This event will take place at the Post Mill Centre on Tuesday 14 May from 5.30pm onwards.  

Places are limited to all the events, so book now to avoid disappointment! You can book your place on any of the events by email to E: ashleyarmitage@nhs.net
