Boston Hospital children's services to remain in place until at least July

Children's services will remain at Boston Pilgrim Hospital until at least the end of July, after managers agreed they do have enough staff to keep going for now.

They were considering temporarily shutting the children's ward there due to a chronic shortage of doctors and nurses.

Since then they've managed to recruit some staff to keep it going for the moment.

At a meeting earlier they agreed it can remain as it is for now - although temporary closures do remain an option, especially after the 1st of August.
