Emergency Department

Hospital emergency departments and 999 calls provide immediate and urgent for people who show symptoms of serious illness or are badly injured.

Visiting / opening times

  • Seven days a week 09:00 AM 09:00 AM

At Doncaster and Bassetlaw Teaching Hospitals, we host two Emergency Departments, both of which provide a 24-hour emergency service for the people of Doncaster, Bassetlaw and the surrounding area. A trained nurse will asses you as soon as possible after your arrival.

Patients are seen in order of clinical priority and not arrival time. This means you will be seen very quickly if your condition needs it, but you may have to wait longer if your condition does not need urgent treatment. If it is not emergency, contact your GP surgery or the Doncaster Same Day Health Centre.

You should only attend the Emergency Department when it’s just that, an emergency. Conditions such as:

  • Unconsciousness
  • Heavy blood loss
  • Suspected broken bones
  • A deep wound
  • Chest pains
  • Difficulty in breathing
  • Severe burns
  • A severe allergic reaction

Our Emergency Departments are located at:

  • Doncaster Royal Infirmary
    Armthorpe Road, Doncaster, DN2 5LT
  • Bassetlaw Hospital
    Kilton Hill, Worksop, S81 0BD
    *Please note that Bassetlaw Emergency Department does not deal with suspected strokes or significant mechanism trauma. In these instances, you should dial 999 for ambulance services or present at Doncaster Royal Infirmary. 

If you are ill or injured, but it is not an emergency, try one of the below services:
