Benefits of #TeamDBTH

At Doncaster and Bassetlaw Teaching Hospitals it’s our ambition to offer our staff both excellent working facilities, but also a host of benefits when you join the team…

On-site facilities

Alongside our partners at Sodexo, the Trust offers a number of eateries, as well as a Costa Coffee and Subway. This is in addition to Volunteer Service shops and a WHSmiths.

Learning and development opportunities

As one of the region’s Teaching Hospitals, we believe it’s absolutley paramount to encourage our staff to develop their skill set. From training to lunchtime lectures, our dedicated Education Team can help you to take that next step in your career. The quality of patient care the Trust is able to provide and the range of services that it is able to offer are upon the ability to ensure our current employees, together with any potential employees, are motivated, satisfied and want to stay working for us.  This includes making sure staff have a personal development plan in place, access to training, development and career opportunities.

Park and Ride

We understand that parking can be an issue at most hospitals, this is why at Doncaster Royal Infirmary we provide a bus service to and from our 500 capacity car park, both of which are absolutley free. As we work across multiple sites in a 20-mile radius, we also provide a free-to-use shuttle bus to make it easier and cheaper to get around the Trust.

Health and Wellbeing

Working within the hustle and bustle of the NHS can make it hard to find time for yourself. Whether it’s joining the DBTH netball team, taking part in a lunch-time walk with colleagues or getting your flu jab – the Health and Wellbeing Team are here to ensure you’re supported in leading a healthy lifestyle.

Weekly newsletter and communications

Keeping up with the latest happenings within an expansive and varied organisation such as ours can be tough, that’s why we publish a weekly newsletter called the Buzz. Here you can find out about the latest Trust news, events and achievements.

STAR Awards

Recognising our staff for their hardwork and dedication is very important at DBTH. Each month a team and individual member of staff is awarded our STAR Award, with a glitsy annual event held for our STARs of the year.

Christmas Advent calendar

Beginning in 2021, from 1 to 25 December, every member of staff is enrolled in a prize-draw to mark the days of Advent and as a ‘thank you’ to all colleagues for their efforts throughout the year. Last year prizes included tickets to West End shows, a smart watch, a spa day and much, much more!

Facebook group

Alongside the Buzz, colleagues can stay in touch and up-to-date by joining a very active Facebook group for members of staff. With daily postings, you will join 6,000 of your colleagues discussing the things that matters, receiving all the latest news, as well as getting involved in exclusive polls and engagements about specific developments within our hospitals.

Random Acts of Kindness

We have a schedule of events known as ‘Random Acts of Kindness’. This ranges from a free cuppa’ and slice of cake delivered by the Executive Team for all staff to a free £25 gift voucher at Christmas. Each random act is a surprise, and we have a number organised for 2022!
