Website Puts Patients in Touch

Patients can find out more about hospital services on a new- look website.

Introduced by United Lincolnshire Hospitals Trust, it lists which services are available at each of its sites in Lincoln, Louth, Grantham and Boston.

Details of visiting times have also been posted as well as car parking charges and the average waiting time to see consultants.

Trust chief executive Gary Walker said the website was improved last year and currently receives nearly 12,000 hits a month.

"It is much more easy to navigate and should provide a comprehensive catalogue of information about our hospitals," he said.

"We aim to provide as much information as possible about our services and what patients can expect and this website is just one other way of doing that."
