Our staff are more than happy to help, so if you do have any questions regarding your visit that we haven’t answered, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Involvement and feedback from patients is very important to us. Information we collect from helps us to understand patient experience for individual services and the overall Trust. This is then used to find areas to focus on for improvement and to let staff know when you think you have received good care.

If you have any feedback about a service you have received at DBTH – good or bad – we’d love to know. Please give details of the incident in the box below:

Patient and public involvement is important to us, ensuring the services we provide reflect what matters to the people who will use them.

Our Charity 

Doncaster and Bassetlaw Teaching Hospitals Charity is the official charity which supports Doncaster Royal Infirmary, Bassetlaw Hospital and Montagu Hospital to go above and beyond by providing additional equipment, services and amenities for our patients, visitors and staff which cannot be funded by the NHS alone.

From the little things like toys to comfort children during an overnight stay, to the big investments which enable us to purchase cutting-edge technology that detects deadly infections like meningitis and the flu. Whether it is a small donation or a large cheque, every pound and penny you give enables us to achieve more. Find out how you can support our charity here.
