New assessment for A and E patients at Scunthorpe and Grimsby hospital

It would see "urgent treatment centre"

There are proposals to start assessing all patients who walk into A&Es in Scunthorpe and Grimsby before they're allowed through to the emergency departments.

The 'urgent treatment centres' would act as 'front door' with the hopes they'd cut down long waiting times.

The idea is being looked at a meeting of top hospitals bosses this morning.
