Thank you

As I’m sure you are aware many hospitals across the country are experiencing high demand for emergency care due to the additional pressures that winter time brings, and this too has been the case at Doncaster and Bassetlaw hospitals.  As Chief Executive, I wanted to express my sincere appreciation to our staff, volunteers and partner agencies all of whom have gone that extra mile to make sure that all our patients have been seen and are receiving the right care, by the right team.

The sheer determination of our staff to give patients the highest standards of care under such pressure has been exceptional. I am very proud to be part of such a dedicated and talented team.

The whole health and social care community pulled together and all played their part in keeping services running effectively. Thank you to DMBC Social Services, Nottinghamshire County Social Services, Doncaster and Bassetlaw CCGs, Local GPs, Bassetlaw Health Partnerships and Rotherham Doncaster and South Humber NHS Foundation Trust for all your support to help ease the pressure on our Emergency Departments during this busy time.

I am conscious, however, that winter has many more weeks to run and therefore it remains essential that you continue to Choose Wisely and seek advice from general practitioners, pharmacies and the NHS Advice Line 111, which helps our emergency staff concentrate on the seriously ill patients.
