DISRUPTIONS at Barnsley Hospital are likely next week as building works are carried out.

From today (October 21) there will be some changes to the way ambulances will be operating due to construction of a new ambulance canopy.

A spokesperson for Barnsley Hospital said: “The work to construct the ambulance canopy will take seven consecutive days and will also affect some access to car park 4 and drop off and taxi areas.

“There will be a traffic attendant on duty to help visitors navigate.”
