Grantham A&E could reopen overnight over winter

Health managers will discuss it at a meeting next week.

It's been confirmed that the trust running Grantham A&E will consider reopening it 24 hours a day over the winter.

Health managers are due to make a decision at a board meeting next week, with the recommendation it stays open overnight.

The emergency department has been closing in the evening for over a year.

They now have 22 doctors working for them...which is above the number they need to safely staff the departments at Boston, Lincoln and Grantham.

But it's not a done deal... they have to be sure they have enough medics for three months.
