Bassetlaw’s Emergency Department re-opens

The service was closed temporarily as colleagues dealt with an incident earlier today (20 April).

Bassetlaw Hospital’s Emergency Department reopened at 9.30am. The service was temporarily closed earlier this morning as a patient presented after exposure to an unknown chemical substance. The appropriate decontamination procedures were followed and colleagues worked with the relevant agencies. Following final checks, the Emergency Department will safely reopen – no additional harm occurred during this incident and we thank colleagues for their response and our communities for their patience in this matter.
