Derby Healthcare Starts Construction for Two New Mental Health Hospitals in UK


The Derbyshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust has begun building new mental health hospital facilities in Derby and Chesterfield, UK.


The 54 single, en-suite rooms in the new Derby and Chesterfield facilities will significantly improve the patient experience. The people who stay in these new rooms will have access to much-needed protection, privacy, and dignity. The facility will also have therapy rooms, green areas, and temperature-controlled rooms to keep patients secure and comfortable while they are there.

The current dormitory accommodations will be replaced with these upgraded facilities, giving occupants a considerably more upscale and cozy environment. The improved setting will increase the patients' comfort and make them feel safer, allowing them to concentrate on getting better.

The NHS is also opening a new 14-bed psychiatric intensive care unit (PICU) at Derby's Kingsway Hospital. This is a significant milestone for Derbyshire because there is currently no PICU in the county, therefore those who require this level of care must travel to neighboring counties in order to find a suitable bed.

NHS is also launching a new 14-bed psychiatric intensive care unit (PICU) at Kingsway Hospital in Derby. This is an important development for Derbyshire, as the county currently lacks a PICU and people needing this level of support are forced to travel to other counties to access an appropriate bed.

The developments are expected to be finished in 2025 for the Psychiatric Intensive Care Unit and 2024 for the acute facilities.
