A small group of the Grantham protesters is due to meet Grantham MP Nick Boles this afternoon in the House of Commons to ask him about his role in keeping the A&E department open.

United Lincolnshire Hospitals NHS Trust closed the department on August 17 between 6.30pm and 9am to relieve a staffing crisis at Lincoln and Boston. It says the Grantham department will remain closed over night at least until November 17.
