Non-urgent outpatient appointments cancelled with immediate effect

All non-urgent outpatient appointments at United Lincolnshire Hospital NHS trust hospitals and practices have been cancelled with immediate effect as the nation continues to battle Covid-19.

This comes after a series of increasingly tight restrictions on visitors.

Today, a spokesperson for the trust announced:

“[The Trust] is working hard to prevent the spread of coronavirus and to protect our patients and staff from becoming seriously ill.

We have, therefore, made the difficult decision to suspend all non-urgent outpatient appointments.

We are asking patients to not attend your outpatient appointment unless we have contacted you directly.

The Trust is conducting some outpatient appointments by telephone or video calling too, and we have contacted these patients individually.

Appointments will be rearranged for a future date at a time when it is safe to do so.”

The spokesperson added that the trust would like to thank patients for their patience, understanding and cooperation at this “difficult time.”

This applies to all United Lincolnshire Hospitals NHS trust hospitals, including Lincoln County Hospital, Grantham and District Hospital, Pilgrim Hospital Boston and County Hospital Louth.
