Grantham A&E opening hours

Due to severe shortage in emergency medicine doctors at Lincoln and Boston hospitals, opening times at Grantham A&E have reduced. Grantham A&E is open from 8am to 6.30pm 7 days a week.

After 6.30pm, people visiting friends and family in the hospital should use the entrance in the tower block. The service between 8am and 6.30pm will not change and will continue to see patients with minor injuries and illnesses.

During the hours of 6.30pm to 8am, 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.

Lincoln and Pilgrim A&Es remain open 24/7.
