Boston Pilgrim Hospital A&E Department To Double In Size
Great news for the people of Boston, Lincolnshire and surrounding areas. Pilgrim Hospital A & E department is going to be transformed into one of the biggest accident and emergency departments in Greater Lincolnshire.
There are plans to modernise the A&E department at Pilgrim Hospital and double the size of the department which would also include more cubicles and extra training rooms for staff.
The Multi-million-pound plans outline by United Lincolnshire Hospital NHS Trust will make the A&E department one of the best in the country.
The NHS trust has released an artist’s impression of how the new development would look. The plans will shortly be submitted to Boston Borough Council for approval
As part of the development, there will be a bigger resuscitation zone and new infection prevention control measures.
United Lincolnshire Hospitals NHS Trust chief executive Andrew Morgan said: “This is a major milestone in the transformation of the emergency department at Pilgrim Hospital.
“It has taken us a while to finalise the plans, but this is because we understand how important it is that we get it right for our patients, their families and our staff.
“We have spoken to all of our colleagues, partner organisations, local groups and our patients as part of this process. This is not only about the care that we provide today, but also for future generations.
“I am assured that this design is going to deliver everything that we need it to and will give our patients and staff the first-class environment that they need and deserve.”
The hospital which is used by people living in and around Boston including Skegness, will need planning permission from Boston Borough Council before work can begin.
