Made a quick trip here and I was impressed by its size. Loved the many art works found along their corridors. The stunning view from the 5th floor is unforgettable. I love the fact I could park very close to the main entrance in car park 8.

Referred to A&E by local walk-in centre. Hospital was very clean, staff were friendly and courteous. Saw a GP then a specialist ENT doctor, both of them very thorough and willing to listen. Yes there is a degree of waiting involved but that’s life at the minute. I was pretty impressed 👍 …

Communication between wards and with patients family is terrible. It’s unfortunate that we do not live in Derby and therefore unable to visit as much as we would like. This has been explained a number of times, to each person that we talk …

Hospital overall is fine. Only one problem is A&E waiting times… I been 4 times and each time I was waiting over 8 hours, starving and tired. I was about to give up and go home, better to feel bad in my own bed instead of waiting room with moaning people around. They need employed more staff for A&E

Great hospital, busy as usual, and parking was an issue. If you need to park at the hospital, I recommend you go earlier than your appointment, find a parking space, then have a drink in one of the coffee shops.

Fantastic support from the ophthalmology department when I was there as an emergency patient… in, seen by two consultants and tear in my retina lasered in just over an hour and a half.. Amazing!
I can’t thank them enough!

Biggest pain is the parking. Shouldn’t be a 30 min queue for every car park, especially not mid morning. One way system doesn’t help at all. Quite the opposite, makes people go all the way around when a carpark is full. Really poor design. Hospital itself is missing key signposts to help people navigate.

The hospital is clean and modern, with clear signposting. The car parks get absolutely rammed full, and there are always queues to access them, so come at least 30 minutes before any appointment you may have.

Cant put in to words but will try! From the midwives to doctors/sisters/nurses the closest word to describe them is hero’s. So proud of our NHS and the dedication, professionalism and love they’ve shown treating and delivering our baby boy.

I work here & it’s a good hospital. The team and i recruit the lovely Trust volunteers who will meet you at the main entrance, drive you to your clinic on the yellow buggy or be there to assist in our many departments or on our wards. They’re all amazing and yes I love my job.
