Matron ‘proud’ as revamped Doncaster hospital unit opens

  • 1 Comment

Doncaster and Bassetlaw Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust has completed the first phase of an ambitious redevelopment plan for emergency care.

Its new 43-bed acute medical unit spans the whole of the third floor of Doncaster Royal Infirmary’s main block.

Jacqueline Crossland, the unit’s matron, said: “We are extremely proud of the new unit which creates the perfect setting to provide patients who are very unwell with the most appropriate care. 

“It is a busy unit and it is very surprising on how the design and layout makes a great difference to the way we care for patients – everything flows so much easier now.”

The first phase of the new unit has seen the creation of a modern ward that consists of 19 beds in a layout that includes seven single-bedded rooms with en suite facilities and four bays each with three beds and en suite facilities. Another addition to the unit is its new reception.

Ms Crossland added: “We’ve recently opened the new reception area which frees up nurses’ time and gives us more opportunity to focus on patients.”

The second phase of the acute medical unit will start early summer and see the redevelopment of the unit’s remaining 24 beds.
