What is Derbyshire Health United? Derbyshire Health United Limited is a social enterprise and a not for profit company, known locally as DHU. The company was established in April 2007 as a result of a merger between two Derbyshire based companies that were set up by local general practitioners. More details about the history and previous company details can be found in our ‘Background and History’ section. DHU is now officially classified as a medium sized organisation under The Confederation of British Industry's definition. We are, however, large enough to be operationally robust but small enough to care and to be flexible in meeting our commissioners’ requirements.
We are often told that we have a “can do” attitude and hope that you will find this in your dealings with DHU. At DHU we are committed to providing the highest quality of medical care at the right place and at the right time. We are a flexible company and so we are able to rapidly adapt to the changing health service by working closely alongside our commissioners, adapting to their needs where necessary. As a not for profit organisation, any surplus funds generated are reinvested in our staff and facilities so that the patients we serve gain greatest benefit.
