Doncaster and Bassetlaw Teaching Hospitals launches
Doncaster and Bassetlaw Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust is now officially a Teaching Hospital.
Supported by both Sheffield Hallam University and the University of Sheffield, and with approval from regulator NHS Improvement, the Trust has now changed its name to ‘Doncaster and Bassetlaw Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust’.
Attaining Teaching Hospital status enables the Trust to further enhance education and training capacity, grow research capability and improve the recruitment and retention of high quality staff across all professions. All of this will ultimately result in a positive impact on the quality of care and outcomes for patients.
By 2018, the Trust is projecting to train 25 per cent of the medical students in the region and is already training 30 per cent of all non-medical students.
