Board approves 'temporary' downgrade of Grantham A&E
There will be anger and disappointment across Grantham today (Thursday) as a "temporary" downgrade of the A&E at Grantham Hospital has been given the green light.
The board of the United Lincolnshire Hospitals NHS Trust (ULHT) has this morning approved a plan to turn the A&E department into an urgent treatment centre from June 22.
The trust says this is a "temporary" measure which would be in place until at least March 31, 2021.
