Integrated sexual health services are commissioned by Derbyshire County and Derby City Councils and includes sexual health promotion and outreach work. Alongside the integrated sexual health services that run from the two main hubs at Wheatbridge Health Village in Chesterfield and Florence Nightingale Community Hospital in Derby, we have several local clinics across Derbyshire and Derby City.
Our Health Psychology department is home to a range of psychologically informed services. These include Diabetes Structured Education, Tier 3 Specialist Weight Management, Specialist Health Psychology and the Public Health Psychological Insights team. Members of our team also work in collaborative roles in different areas across DCHS and the wider integrated care system.

We have four DCHS General Practices in our GP services; Creswell & Langwith Medical Centres, Castle Street Medical Centre in Bolsover, Ripley Medical Centre, and St Lawrence Road in North Wingfield.
Within the division we also have a marketing and communications team, and an information/ analytical team, that work with our different services to support with patient and staff engagement, and provision of data to help us understand how our services are meeting the needs of our local people.
