The organisation said: “This is expected to be a temporary arrangement until the wait times issue is resolved.

“Issues occur when there are several buses there at once.”

Other buses will still serve the hospital as they do not run as regularly as the 11 and 11a.

First South Yorkshire said: “Due to unforeseen circumstances, customers wishing to travel to the Northern General Hospital will have to depart on Barnsley Road and walk into the grounds until further notice.

“We apologies for any inconvenience caused.”
