Sara Elliott, head of Radiology at Doncaster and Bassetlaw Teaching Hospitals, said staff were ‘delighted’ with the delivery of a state-of-the-art CT scanner and MRI Unit last week.

“The new units will help us to enhance and improve local radiology for the over 18,000 patients who use this service each and every year,” she added.

“We also want to thank Keane Creative who have been commissioned by DBTH Charity to create bespoke artwork within the CT Suite.

“A CT scan can sometimes take up to 30 minutes, and this wonderful wall art helps to create an interesting, stimulating and comforting distraction for patients while they undergo their procedure.

"This addition has only been made possible by the kind donations sent to the hospital by our local communities, businesses and organisations.”
