Providing care for those in Doncaster, Bassetlaw and beyond…

Doncaster and Bassetlaw Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust is one of Yorkshire’s leading acute trusts, serving a population of more than 420,000 across South Yorkshire, North Nottinghamshire and the surrounding areas.

Hosting three main hospital sites and a number of additional services, the Trust is one of only five Teaching Hospitals in Yorkshire and by 2018 is projecting to train 25% of all medical students in the region, while we currently train 30% of all other healthcare professional students.

A modern and forward-facing Trust employing over 6,000 members of staff, the hospital provides a full range of local hospital services across the following sites:

  • Doncaster Royal Infirmary (DRI)
    A large acute hospital with over 500 beds, a 24-hour Emergency Department (ED), and trauma unit status. In addition to the full range of district general hospital care, DRI also provides some specialist services including vascular surgery. It has inpatient, day case, diagnostic and outpatient facilities.

Board of Directors

Our Board of Directors are responsible for the management of our hospitals and, with input from the Council of Governors, sets the future direction of the Trust.

They are also responsible for monitoring performance against national, regional and local objectives and ensuring the highest levels of standards and performance.

Whilst the Trust is managed by the Board of Directors, the Board is accountable to the Board of Governors.

Council of Governors

The Council of Governors is made up of 20 governors elected by members of the Trust, six staff governors, two public governors and 11 partner governors elected by our partner organisations.

Public and staff governors are elected by the members in their constituencies, while partner governors are nominated by their organisation.
