    Mammography, Audiology and Children’s Speech and Language Therapy services provided by Doncaster and Bassetlaw Teaching Hospitals (DBTH) will be moving away from the Chequer Road Clinic in the coming months.
     
    Throughout the past number of years, the Trust’s town centre premises have increasingly become unfit for purpose, an issue which is particularly difficult for Audiology. A service which investigates conditions relating to hearing, with the current clinic’s flat roof and out-of-date design, carrying out tests is particularly challenging during certain weather conditions, meaning that patients sometimes have to wait for a break in the clouds before getting the treatment they need.
     
    Seeking to resolve this issue, the Trust will be moving the three services currently based at Chequer Road to the following locations:
     
    Audiology will move less than two miles away to The Sandringham Practice (Sandringham Road, Intake, Doncaster, and South Yorkshire, DN2 5JH).
    Mammography and Children’s Speech and Language Therapy will move less than a third of a mile to Devonshire House (Cavendish Court, South Parade, Doncaster DN1 2DJ).
     
    The new locations are in buildings which are fit-for-purpose for the services which will be provided, with refurbishments to take place to ensure a smooth continuation of care for patients. This includes the building of state-of-the-art sound rooms for Audiology, as well as the purchase of all new Mammography equipment in order to speed up and enhance screening for service-users.
     
    Rebecca Joyce, Chief Operating Officer at DBTH, said: “As a Trust we have been planning this change for a number of months and we are committed to getting it right for our Doncaster residents.
     
    “For a number of years we have faced challenges with our Chequer Road Clinic site and we believe that this move will ensure patients receive a top-notch service within a much more comfortable setting.”
     
    When services have a final date for relocation, existing patients will be notified with at least six weeks’ notice of the change of venue. Both new clinics will offer on-site car parking, as well as being accessible via regular bus routes.
     
    The Trust will update further once a confirmed timeline of dates is in place for the move and current patients are advised to attend their appointments at the Chequer Road Clinic as normal
