Residents urged to join in online consultations over changes to Lincolnshire hospitals

A series of virtual, online public consultation events begin this week, giving people across Lincolnshire the chance to share their views on proposals within the public consultation on four NHS services in the county.

Grantham Hospital EMN-200617-173755001

People joining the events will also hear from clinicians as they explain the proposals, which include moving stroke services from Boston to Lincoln and changing Grantham A&E to an urgent treatment centre.

In the coming weeks, health officials will continue to host a number of face-to-face and virtual 24/7 events, increasing the opportunity to get involved.

Views are being sought on proposed changes to orthopaedic surgery; urgent and emergency care at Grantham and District Hospital; acute medical beds at Grantham and District Hospital and stroke services.
