Trust to manage health services in Bassetlaw and Doncaster

15 Dec 2010 17:12:19


The Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust (TRFT) is in the running to deliver community based health services to people in Bassetlaw and Doncaster.

The Trust has been selected as the preferred provider to deliver care for patients with long term health conditions and medical services for children and families. The contract worth around £14million will see TRFT managing services such as district nursing, community matrons, palliative care, health visitors, child and adolescent mental health services, contraception and sexual health services, and health promotion in the area.

As well as this, TRFT has been successful in becoming the preferred provider for dental care in Doncaster. The Trust will manage Doncaster’s Dental

Access Centre and dental out of hour’s service, subject to the rigorous due diligence process and formal sign off by the Trust Board. Chief of Community Services Andy Irvine says: “Our aim is to deliver quality care to patients whenever and wherever they need it most. By working closely with health professionals to deliver services in the community, we would be able to give people better care more quickly and more efficiently.

“The hospital is already the preferred provider for some of the Community Health Services in Rotherham and subject to ‘due diligence’ and board approval, a large part of Rotherham Community Health Services will move across to the Trust by 1st April 2011. We’re really excited about the possibilities new opportunities in Bassetlaw and Doncaster could bring. It will be a while before we know if we have been successful, but if we are then this project will help us to expand and further improve the care we offer for all the communities we serve.”
