HEALTH chiefs in Derbyshire say they are committed to ensuring the county’s public have a say in how its foundation trust is run.
Bosses at the Derbyshire Community Health Services NHS Trust are to continue discussions about moving towards becoming ‘locally accountable’ next week.
Members of the trust will meet for the latest board meeting on March 28, when the subject will be high on the agenda of topics to be discussed.
Kristeen Farrar, secretary at Derbyshire Community Health Services NHS Trust, said ensuring that members of the public are allowed to have their say is one of the trust’s top priorities.
She said: “We have just successfully appointed public and staff governors ready for becoming a foundation trust.
“Engaging public involvement is a top priority for us and providing greater opportunities for people to have a say in how we run and develop services in future.”
