Barnsley Hospital is set to bring a new community diagnostic centre to The Glass Works this spring. The new facility will include diagnostic services like Ultrasound, X-Ray, Breast Screening, Phlebotomy and Bone Density scanning.

Located in the heart of Barnsley and aims to help improve access for patients, reduce waiting times for diagnostic services, and help with early detection of diseases.

The hospital will continue to offer these services too, so this increased capacity will ease pressure on other NHS services, and help tackle the backlog of diagnostic services which has grown during the Covid-19 pandemic.

We hope to have our first diagnostic services available in April, with others following in May.
