Health Secretary Matt Hancock says ministers will 'review' changes at Grantham Hospital
The decision to downgrade Grantham Hospital’s accident and emergency department as part of its coronavirus containment plans “will be reviewed quarterly,” the health secretary has said.
Responding to a call from Grantham MP Gareth Davies to ensure the changes were “temporary”, Matt Hancock told the House of Commons: “I discussed this issue directly with NHS officials, Grantham will be open 24/7 as an urgent treatment centre and as part of plans to ensure Covid and non-Covid services are kept as separate as possible.
“We will ensure this position will be reviewed quarterly.”
