Derby Education Centre

Derby Education Centre

Derby Education Centre


The Derby Education Centre is based at Derby Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. We pride ourselves on our close working relationship with the local providers of health care, whether that is with the acute sector, the wide range of mental health care provision, or the primary care sector. 

Students obtain practical experience at both the London Road Community Hospital and the Royal Derby Hospital. Placement experiences are also available in several large psychiatric hospitals and in smaller community hospitals and units. 

In June 2012 the Education Centre moved to a purpose built site within the new Royal Derby Hospital, one of the biggest hospitals in the East Midlands. We will continue to promote close contacts with our practice colleagues but it is also a unique opportunity to promote inter-professional learning with The University of Nottingham Medical School at Derby.
