Emergency Department Survey

When would you go to the Emergency Department?

Throughout the past three months, the Emergency Departments within Doncaster and Bassetlaw Teaching Hospitals (DBTH) have seen a surge in demand.

In May, over 15,000 people attended the urgent service, almost 1,000 more than the previous year, while a similar number came in June, another annual rise of around 600.

While the majority of those attending the Emergency Department use the service as intended, the number of individuals attending for non-urgent health matters is increasing, particularly amongst young adults.

To understand this recent development, health partners across Doncaster and Worksop have launched a new survey to ask for feedback on when and why local people use services.
