Like everything we do these days, unpredictability is par for the course. But you can rely on Barnsley Hospital News – and the latest edition is out now. As we head into winter and Tier 3 Covid restrictions, we’ve put together a whole package of useful info. You can learn how to tell the difference between Covid, colds and flu, or take up some practical tips to ease respiratory conditions (page 3), all provided by local health experts.

On pages 1 and 2, catch up on the huge investments our hospital is making into our new children’s Emergency Department and Assessment Unit, and the new Surgical Assessment Unit. Page 2 has an article about the heroic work of hospital staff through Covid including a doctor who came out of retirement to help our gastro team.

Not only have our staff been amazing, but so has the Barnsley community in supporting our hospital charity. People in Barnsley and beyond have made thousands of face coverings and donated record amounts of gifts and goodies (page 4). Thank you!
