What is Making Room for Dignity?

In 2020 the Government pledged more than £400 million to eradicate dormitory accommodation from mental health facilities across the country to improve safety, privacy and dignity of patients experiencing mental illness. Significant national and local investment of more than £100m has been allocated for the development of new facilities across Derbyshire which we have invested in new hospitals.

We are currently building two brand new pioneering mental health facilities, one on the Kingsway Hospital site, Derby just outside of city centre with free car parking, on site canteen and relaxing green spaces and one on the Chesterfield Royal Hospital site. The facilities are planned to be opened in 2024.

In addition to this we will be creating new mental health facilities at the Radbourne Unit on the Royal Derby Hospital site, just outside Derby city centre for our adults of working age patients and at the Walton Hospital Site in Chesterfield for our older adult patients.
