THE drop-off zone and accessible parking bays outside the A and E department at Barnsley Hospital will be temporarily unavailable tomorrow (March 28) due to preparation works on an MRI scanner.

Barnsley Hospital is starting initial works for a new MRI scanner as part of its ongoing investment.

This means that the drop-off area and accessible parking bays outside the front of the emergency department will not be available to use from 7am until 5pm tomorrow.

A spokesperson for Barnsley Hospital said: “Alternative arrangements have been made to divert drop-offs to a nearby staff car park, and extra staff will be on hand to help anyone needing assistance.

“Thank you for your patience as this important work is undertaken.”
