Our Dermatology services are temporarily moving

Dermatology services which are currently provided at Doncaster Royal Infirmary and Bassetlaw Hospital will temporarily move to Montagu Hospital’s Outpatients department with effect from Monday, 6th April 2020, for the duration of the COVID-19 situation.

It is clear that over the next few weeks and months that the NHS is likely to come under severe pressure. At Doncaster and Bassetlaw Teaching Hospitals (DBTH), health professionals are working hard to ensure that the Trust is in the best shape possible to take on the challenges presented by Covid-19.

These preparations will include the movement of some services to make them more resilient and sustainable, purchasing additional equipment, increasing bed and critical care capacity, as well as significantly reducing outpatient and elective activity.

Another crucial part of these plans is the movement of Dermatology services on to one site at Montagu Hospital. This will enable the Trust to continue to deliver high quality care to our dermatology patients, with a multi-professional team based on one site. This will also compliment our infection prevention and control measures.

Our telephone numbers will remain the same:

  • [01302] 644628 – Dermatology Outpatient Reception
  • [01302] 644441 / 644442 / 644443 – Medical Secretaries

Your appointment will be conducted via a telephone consultation unless you are contacted beforehand and advised to attend the hospital to see your health professional. Please ensure that you are available to receive a telephone call and that we have your most up to date details.
