That was a rise of one per cent on the 14,639 visits recorded during December, and 31 per cent more than the 11,319 patients seen in January 2021.
The figures show attendances were below the levels seen before the coronavirus pandemic – in January 2020, there were 16,106 visits to A&E at Doncaster and Bassetlaw Teaching Hospitals Trust.
The majority of attendances last month were via major A&E departments – those with full resuscitation equipment and 24-hour consultant-led care – while 20 per cent were via minor injury units.
Across England, A&E departments received 1.9 million visits last month.
That was in line with December, but 43 per cent more than the 1.3 million seen during January 2021.
