Quality Strategy

Quality counts

Our Quality Strategy outlines how all staff at Derby Teaching Hospitals can ensure we deliver the best quality care and experience to both our staff and patients. 

Our Quality Strategy focuses on the Care Quality Commission’s five key areas – Are services safe, caring, responsive, effective and well led? 

Our Quality leads at Derby Teaching Hospitals are: Cathy Winfield, Executive Director of Patient Experience and Chief Nurse and Dr Nigel Sturrock, Executive Medical Director.

Sir Stephen Moss, Non Executive Director, is Chair of our Quality Committee which reports to the Trust Board.

Across the Trust we have governance structures to ensure patient safety and care always comes first. 

Introducing our Quality Strategy 

We want to make sure we offer our patients the best possible care and treatment while they are with us. Our Quality Strategy lays out our plans for improving the care we provide over the next five years. Our Executive Medical Director Dr Nigel Sturrock ( right )  and Acting Chief Nurse Jim Murray ( left ) are here to tell you more about it.
