Your views: Mexborough Elective Orthopaedic Centre
Nov 10, 2023
Doncaster and Bassetlaw Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust
A £14.9 million project is currently underway at Montagu Hospital in Mexborough, which will bring elective surgery to the site.
A collaborative project undertaken by Doncaster and Bassetlaw Teaching Hospitals (DBTH), Barnsley Hospital NHS Foundation Trust (BH), and The Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust (TRFT), the centre will feature two state-of-the-art theatre units, two anaesthetic rooms and a recovery suite, in addition to 12 inpatient beds.
Initially, the purpose of the new unit will be to undertake hip and knee inpatient procedures, alongside foot, ankle, and, wrist and shoulder day case surgery.
In the first year of operation the centre will undertake some 2,200 orthopaedic procedures on behalf of the three partner trusts, equating to about 40% of the current orthopaedic waiting list locally.
If you live in Barnsley, Doncaster and Rotherham and need this kind of procedure, from 2024 there is the possibility that you may be offered to receive your care in this new facility.
As such, we want your views (whether you're currently awaiting care, or just a resident in Barnsley, Rotherham and Doncaster).
