We are keen to promote the work being carried out at the Doncaster and Bassetlaw Teaching Hospitals in the media. However, the welfare of patients is our primary concern and we reserve the right to decline media requests where these conflict with patient care, our duty to patient and staff confidentiality or operational requirements.
