ULHT Board to consider reopening Grantham A&E overnight

Posted on

On Tuesday 7 November, United Lincolnshire Hospitals NHS Trust (ULHT) Board will consider whether to reopen Grantham A&E 24 hours a day over the winter. NHS Improvement has asked that the final decision on whether to reopen be deferred by one month, in order to allow for an independent review of staffing to be carried out. This review will look at the staffing model for all three A&Es, to ensure that before Grantham is reopened overnight, clinical staffing across Lincolnshire’s A&Es is safe and sustainable over winter.
