‘Improvement’ works continue at Grimsby Hospital

Contractors are set to begin installing a new oxygen system at Grimsby Hospital today as part of an ongoing programme of improvements.

Plans for the £30 million programme of works taking place at Grimsby Hospital will see a number of new purpose built facilities created, with existing buildings being extensively refurbished.

Some of the facilities are already up and running, according to Northern Lincolnshire and Goole NHS Foundation Trust.

Included in the extensive proposal are a brand new Emergency Department and a multi-storey car park.

Today contractors have begun installing a new and improved oxygen system.

The works have resulted in a one-way system being put in place until further notice.

As such, hospital visitors are advised to be aware of a number of accessibility restrictions. Here’s what you need to know:

  • If you are only going to the drop-off area you don’t have to follow the one way system and can exit via Scartho Road as normal.
  • If you come into site via Second Avenue, you will be able to access the car parks behind the restaurant and next to Family Services as normal.
  • To access the Assisted Living Centre, turn right from Scartho Road.
  • Bus routes are operating as normal.

If you are visiting over the weekend:

  • If you drive past or park in the nursery car park, you will need to follow the one way system around the site, past The Roost and Family Services building. When you get to the junction, you will have to turn left and exit the site via Second Avenue, as the junction leading to Receipt and Distribution is closed.
  • If you want to leave the site via Second Avenue, you will also have to follow the one way system.

The project is funded by NHS England and the Department of Health and Social Care.
