Inspectors have given the county’s health trust top marks for safety and security.

Derbyshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust has received a green rating for the safety and security of its services, following an assessment and inspection by NHS Protect, which leads on work to identify and tackle crime across the health service.

The assessment particularly focused on two key areas – the trust’s ability to hold people to account, and to inform and involve those who use and deliver its services. The inspection checked that effective procedures had been put in place to ensure safety.

The assessment also reported that the trust has clear policies in place to prevent and address violence, security breaches, theft and criminal damage.
