ULHT will be temporarily changing the opening hours of the A&E department at Grantham and District Hospital to help maintain safe services across Lincolnshire.
From Wednesday 17 August, Grantham A&E will be open from 9am to 6.30 pm, seven days a week for three months. Reducing the opening hours of Grantham A&E will help maintain safe services across Lincolnshire as we can move doctors from Grantham to Lincoln and Pilgrim A&Es – our busiest A&Es.
The A&E doors will close at 6.30pm and will be reopened at 9am. After 6.30pm, people visiting friends and family in hospital should use the entrance in the tower block. The service between 9am and 6.30pm will not change and will continue to see patients with minor injuries and illnesses.
During the hours of 6.30pm to 9am, if it’s not a 999 emergency, but someone needs medical help fast, they should call NHS 111. NHS 111 will assess their symptoms and immediately direct them to the best medical care.
