Hospital's 1.77m projects begin

Health bosses at Lincoln County Hospital say patients are set to benefit from two major projects.

The children's day ward has recently moved from its old site into a new, purpose-built ward block with a playroom and relatives' room.

The vacated space will be refurbished and be used as an extension to the hospital's emergency assessment unit.

Together the projects will cost £1.77m and should be fully up and running by July.

The extension to the EAU will provide 19 trolley bays and beds as well as a new reception area and waiting room.

Sister of the EAU Helen Shelton said: "The additional beds will enable us to provide a prompt nursing and medical assessment for patients being referred to the unit."
