As part of our ongoing commitment to continually improve hospital services, we are currently undertaking a review of both planned and emergency urology services across Lincolnshire’s hospitals.
Currently, planned urology services are delivered from Lincoln County Hospital, Pilgrim Hospital, Boston, Grantham and District Hospital and County Hospital, Louth. Emergency urology admissions at the weekends go through one single site alternating between Lincoln and Pilgrim hospitals with emergency admissions at both Lincoln and Pilgrim hospitals during the week.
Taking into account patient experience insight, expert clinical advice, discussions with partners and available data, we are proposing that Lincoln County Hospital in future receives all emergency urology admissions seven days per week.
We believe that this change would increase our capacity to perform planned surgery without disruption to patients, better meet the needs of our emergency cases and see and treat more people.
We now want to hear from you about your views around this proposed change.
To offer up your views about these proposals, and contribute to shaping our urology service:
