Barnsley Hospital NHS Trust
Barnsley is a smaller Trust with great Consultant support. The hospital has undergone extensive development over the past few years, including an £8 million development of their Imaging Department, a £1 million refurbishment of the Acute Medical Unit and a £2 million development of the Emergency Department Clinical Decision Unit (CDU) and Resuscitation Unit.
Doncaster and Bassetlaw Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust
The Trust is spread across three hospitals over the local area:
Doncaster Royal infirmary has one of the busiest emergency services in the country, with a 24-hour Emergency Department (ED) and trauma unit status, as well as a full range of hospital care and specialist services including vascular surgery.
Bassetlaw Hospital in Worksop is a slightly smaller acute hospital, again with a 24-hour ED and a full range of district general hospital services, with inpatient, day case and outpatient facilities.
Montagu Hospital in Mexborough is a small non-acute hospital for people needed further rehabilitation before being discharged.
Sheffield Children’s NHS Foundation Trust
With a state of the art £40 million children’s ward, Sheffield Children’s mostly deal with children aged 0-16 but also up to 18-year-olds from the region. The Trust is recognised as a Centre of Excellence, with UK leading departments and clinicians in paediatric care. The Trust also has the only Paediatric Emergency Department in Yorkshire, which makes working there a great opportunity for anyone looking for paediatric experience.
Chesterfield Royal Hospital NHS Foundation Trust
Slightly south of Sheffield and creeping out of Yorkshire is Chesterfield Royal Hospital NHS Foundation Trust. It was one of the first to become a Foundation Trust and offers a full range of acute services, 24-hour A&E care and specialist children’s services.
It is just a 15-minute train from Sheffield to Chesterfield, and if you were going from Sheffield train station directly to CRH, the whole journey would only take around 35 minutes!
