Repairs underway at Doncaster Royal Infirmary

A number of changes are in place at Doncaster Royal Infirmary as work to repair damage from a major water leak gets underway.

As a result, health bosses at Doncaster and Bassetlaw Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust have introduced a number of changes to appointments and services.

The incident saw most of the department, including newborn babies and their mothers, evacuated after the leak caused a power supply failure at the women’s hospital last Tuesday night.
Repairs are now taking place and a full investigation is underway.
Unfortunately, a number of departments have been forced to alter their appointments and the services on offer.

Here are the current changes, as detailed by a spokesperson for the trust:

“The Neonatal Unit is relocated to the former Children’s Ward on Level 4 of the Women’s and Children’s Hospital (W&CH). It retains the same contact number.

“The Children’s Ward will relocate to the Enhanced Recovery Unit (now renamed the Children’s Ward), which is on the basement level of South Block. It will retain the same contact number.

“M1 returns to the normal place, while M2 will be relocated to what was G5 (level 5 of the W&CH). They will retain the same numbers.

“G5 will relocate to what was Mallard Ward. It will retain the same number.

“All scanning appointments are going ahead as normal.

“Antenatal appointments are going ahead as normal.

“All routine inpatient and day case procedures are going ahead as normal.

“All gynaecology outpatient appointments at Doncaster Royal Infirmary cancelled until next Thursday, except urgent and colposcopy clinics.”

A&E and Bassetlaw services were unaffected by the leak and are operating as normal.
