Downgrade of Grantham Hospital A&E
ULHT plans include the downgrade of Grantham Hospital Accident Emergency Unit & Boston Pilgrim A&E with future A&E services for Lincolnshire County Council to be centred on Lincoln Hospital which is struggling to cope with existing workloads and stretched to capacity.
Grantham Hospital Serves 120,000 People
The area has a mixed rural & urban community with residents & businesses in over 40 villages and 4 towns. Public transport is poor with virtually no bus service in the evenings & overnight. The area has a significant number of single parent households and low income households. Many have no car.
Overnight Closure of Grantham Hospital A&E
Despite issues with the local Ambulance service and Lincoln County Hospital, having stated the night time closure would be initially for 3 months ULHT have recently stated that the unit will be closed until at least February 2017.
We shall endeavour to get important news added to the website as quickly as possible.
