Grantham Hospital has submitted plans for an extension to its Kingfisher ward to form a new entrance to the children’s clinic with extra car parking space.
The United Lincolnshire Hospitals NHS Trust, which runs the hospital, is making the alterations to the ward as part of a scheme to refurbish it.
The new lobby extension will provide a dedicated entrance to the clinic so children and their families do not need to enter via the corridors in the hospital.
As part of the plan, about 14 extra parking spaces are also proposed including three disabled spaces allowing people to park close to the clinic.
The applicant says the children’s clinic will be operated using exisiting staff members.
