Local hospital Trust unveils dedicated Student Hub

Doncaster and Bassetlaw Teaching Hospitals (DBTH) has unveiled a new Student Hub at Doncaster Royal Infirmary, providing a dedicated learning and development space for students on placement at the Trust.

Located in the hospital’s Education Centre, the newly refurbished space is equipped with a PC suite, comfortable seating, lockers and a small kitchenette for all learners to utilise. The Student Hub will provide a comfortable and modern environment away from clinical areas for students to learn, creating a central hub for communication and support, with opportunities for peer-to-peer learning and independent study.
