Grantham Hospital is one of four in Lincolnshire to be awarded a national accreditation for the high standards of care provided by its endoscopy unit.

The department has retained its JAG accreditation, which is a national award set up to ensure high standards of care in clinical quality, quality of patient experience, training and workforce.

In order to meet the standards required, United Lincolnshire Hospitals NHS Trust reduced waiting times to three weeks and invested in the training of three new nurse endoscopists who work across all sites.

Clinical services manager Nikki Woodcock said: “All the units have worked extremely hard to make the required improvements to the services we deliver to the patients.”
