The Barnsley Hospital CMDU service is located in the Discharge Lounge (Ward 16) and is open Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm (excluding bank holidays).

Patients who test positive (following a PCR test) for COVID-19 and meet the high risk patient criteria will be referred to the Barnsley CMDU service by NHS Track and Trace.

Patients will then be contacted by a clinician from the Barnsley CMDU service for an initial telephone review for eligibility – where appropriate patients will be subsequently offered treatment and go through a consent process.

If a patient isn’t contacted by a member of the Barnsley CMDU service they are encouraged to contact their GP who can make a subsequent referral via the eRS system.
