The new Urgent and Emergency Care Centre has all the acute facilities expected of a new ED department, its design enables the integration of the WIC and GPs’ out-of-hours service, bringing all emergency care under one roof. With the complete integration of these services, our attendances reach in excess of 120,000, including both adults and paediatrics. As well as a new six bedded resus and separate paediatric areas, it includes an upper floor with a large seminar room, meeting room and several additional rooms for teaching and meetings as well as excellent staff facilities.
The hospital is situated less than two miles from the Centre of Rotherham, is close to the city of Sheffield, is located within two miles of the M1 and M18 motorways and is on the door step of the peak district. The Trust has Associate Teaching Hospital status and is highly regarded by the large number of student doctors on attachment from Sheffield. The Trust has an enviable reputation as a place to train and this supported by the annual deanery Quality Management visits and responses from the GMC trainee survey.
Modern on-site hospital accommodation may be available if required.
