"patients on steroids automatically excluded"

About: Newark Hospital

You don't see this information on the Trust website and GP practice's don't seem to know about it but Newark Hospital is so deficient in staff and facilities that it apparently can't treat any patients on any form of steroid medications. That's a huge potential patient group automatically excluded but you and your GP won't find that out until after you have wasted your time and the GP's valuable time doing your referral. If this place can't manage to give patients their medication at the right time and at the right dose then it should be closed down.
