Following a successful bid for Government funding, we're proud to be developing a brand new Surgical Treatment and Diagnostic Hub at Dewsbury Hospital.
Following a successful bid for Transformation Investment Fund (TIF) Government funds, a brand new Surgical Treatment and Diagnostic Hub is being developed at Dewsbury Hospital. This hub will provide an estimated 65,000 additional episodes of care for our patients each year.
The Surgical Treatment and Diagnostic Hub is one of 50 new, state-of-the-art centres opening across the country, aimed at tackling Covid-related surgical backlogs, significantly increasing capacity, reducing waiting lists and improving patient care.
The hub will be designed to provide a wide range of low complex diagnostic and treatment services, including surgical procedures, diagnostic imaging, and outpatient services. It will also incorporate the latest technologies and equipment to ensure that patients receive the best possible care.
The hub will be located on the current car park which sits outside of the Boothroyd Centre, Fitton House and Staincliffe Wing buildings. Click here to view a Dewsbury Hospital site map.

We recognise that the development of the new Surgical Treatment and Diagnostic Hub will have an impact on patient, visitor and staff car parking at Dewsbury Hospital.
As onsite building works begin, please note that from Monday 31 July, the car park in between the Boothroyd Centre and Fitton House (opposite the Staincliffe Wing) will no longer be accessible.
Extra parking provisions have been put in place to ensure visitors and staff have appropriate access to car parking. Alternative visitor parking can be located to the front of the main entrance to the Ridings building, with staff car parking located in the main staff car park, located on the right-hand side of Fox View, accessed via the main hospital entrance off Halifax Road. Pedestrian access to the Boothroyd Centre will still be available.
Disabled parking and temporary patient drop-off can be located by the current ambulance drop-off area to the side of the Ridings building. Car parking spaces for Dialysis/Renal will remain operational throughout the works.
