Council to decide next steps on Grantham A&E closure

We'll get an update on the overnight closure of Grantham's A&E department later.

Lincolnshire County Councillors are discussing what should happen next, after health secretary Jeremy Hunt decided against independently reviewing the reduced opening hours.

Last month a government panel ruled that the closure could no longer be called 'temporary', having now lasted for a full year and that an alternative model for emergency care should be looked into.

They'll also hear from hospital managers on any progress in recruitment.
