Controversial urgent treatment centre opens today at Grantham Hospital
A new urgent treatment centre (UTC) has opened today at Grantham Hospital, replacing its A&E unit.
Lincolnshire Community Health Services NHS Trust (LCHS) will provide the temporary 24/7 UTC on the Grantham Hospital site.
The controversial decision to introduce a temporary UTC was taken by the United Lincolnshire Hospitals NHS Trust Board of Directors earlier this month, as part of plans to provide a COVID-free ‘Green’ site at Grantham Hospital. Campaigners have protested outside the hospital recently against the changes, voicing their concerns that the downgrade of A&E will be permanent.
