Traveling to Derby

Derby has excellent communication links. It is about 40 minutes from Birmingham 1 hour 40 from London, 2 hours from the Northwest, 3 hours from the Northeast, Norfolk or the Southwest.

Derby Hospitals

I practice from 2 hospitals, Derby City Hospital and the Nuffield. The first of these is a major teaching hospital and is undergoing a £330 million re-development. It has many single occupancy rooms with en-suite facilities to minimise hospital acquired infections. Derby urology itself is a major unit, accepting tertiary referrals from local units, currently it is the third busiest unit in terms of urological cancer in the UK as measured by returns to our specialty organisation, the British Association of Urological Surgeons. Our catchment area is over 1 million patients. The Nuffield hospital is a well equipped private hospital with a high dependency unit. Both hospitals are well placed on the edge of the city for easy access.

Staying In Derby

If yourself or a relative is attending the Derby City Hospital, Derbyshire Royal Infirmary or the Derby Nuffield Hospital there are a number of good quality hotels in the Derby area. Centrally placed opposite the DRI is the Stuart Hotel, this is a modern 'boutique' hotel with room prices from £90 per person. Just to the north of Derby is the Breadsall Priory Hotel, this grade 2 listed hotel has extensive facilities including 3 gymnasiums, a pool and golf course. It is approximately 15 minutes from both the DRI and the Nuffield. The Mickleover Court Hotel is a modern hotel with a fitness centre, swimming pool and restaurants, it is placed approximately 5 minutes away from the Derby Nuffield Hospital. Several good restaurants can be found in the Sadler Gate area and for a more formal meal Darley's, picturesquely next to the River Derwent is recommended. The Premiere Travel Inn (£58 per room) is opposite the Derby City hospital and next door to several restaurants.
