Welcome to the NHS East Midlands (East Midlands Strategic Health Authority) website. NHS East Midlands is the headquarters of the NHS in the East Midlands and was formally established on 1 July 2006, replacing the former Leicestershire, Northamptonshire and Rutland Strategic Health Authority and Trent Strategic Health Authority.
NHS East Midlands provides strategic leadership to NHS organisations in the counties of Derbyshire, Leicestershire, Lincolnshire, Northamptonshire, Nottinghamshire and Rutland. These organisations have a total NHS budget of £4.1bn, and serve a combined population of 4.3 million.
The role of NHS East Midlands is to ensure that local health systems operate effectively and efficiently and that national standards and priorities are met in order to continually improve services for patients.
We work in partnership with NHS organisations, regional government and other bodies and are ultimately accountable to the secretary of state for health.
