Our Dewsbury site is where we carry out more of our planned surgery. The hospital has a busy outpatient clinic and a new multi-million pound midwife led birth unit.
Dewsbury is also where rehabilitation for people with neurological conditions or who have suffered a stroke, takes place and we have a dedicated children’s assessment service to reduce the time children spend in hospital.
Dewsbury Hospital is also undergoing a transformation, with around £20m being spent on improvements and redevelopment. This has already provided the new children’s assessment unit, and there will be new medical wards, a new surgical ward - with dedicated beds for people who have had surgery to joints or bones - upgraded operating theatres in a new complex, increased outpatient clinics, new day case units, a new pathology lab, specialist diagnostic equipment and new office facilities. This will complement the existing buildings to help transform local patient care.
