Each care group is headed by at least one Clinical Director who is
responsible for the clinical and financial performance of the group.
Clinical Directors report to the Chief Executive.
The Trust's clinical services are divided into clinical directorates which are split into care groups:
- Emergency Care (A&E, Diabetes & Endocrinology, Respiratory, Gastroenterology, Pharmacy)
- OSCCA (Operating Services, Critical Care and Anaesthesia)
- Specialised Cancer, Medicine & Rehabilitation (Communicable Diseases & Specialised Medicine, Spinal Injuries / Rehabilitation, Specialised Cancer)
- South Yorkshire Regional Services (Cardiac & Thoracic, Renal and Vascular)
- LEGION (Laboratory Medicine, Medical Imaging & Medical Physics, Obstetrics, Gynaecology and Neonatology)
- Head & Neck (Neurosciences, ENT, Oral & Dental, Ophthalmology)
- Surgical Services (General Surgery, Burns & Plastics and Urology)
- Combined Community and Acute Care (Integrated Community Care, Pimary Care and Interface Services, Integrated Geriatric & Stroke Medicine, Therapeutics & Palliative Care)
- Muskulo-Skeletal (Chronic Pain, The Hand Centre, Rheumatology, Metabolic Bone and Orthopaedics)
Clinical Directors are supported by Operations Directors who look after aspects of planning and performance within the directorate.
Nurse Directors look after all aspects of the patient experience and work closely with Operations Directors to make sure the correct resources are available to be able to deliver high standards of patient care.
The care groups are all structured differently as their functions and responsibilities vary. The main priority of each and every directorate is to deliver the highest quality patient care and continuously work towards improving the patient experience.
