Cost of dealing with crisis at Boston Pilgrim Hospitals children’s ward hits nearly £2.3m

It's after just 7 months

An 'interim' model was introduced at the paediatrics ward, after concerns over severe staffing shortages.

Bosses say the main reason for the cost was emergency ambulance transfers and they expect the cost of running to go down.

Meanwhile, the acute services review has proposed a similar model continue at Boston Pilgrim...and an assessment unit be set up at Lincoln County Hospital.

Officials say the proposals are part of the ongoing “Healthy Conversations” engagement process.
