Spalding patients will soon see an increase in the number of specialist clinics available to them on their doorstep.
Peterborough and Stamford Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust is increasing the number of gynaecology and paediatric clinics it runs at the Johnson Community Hospital in Spalding.
There are already specialist clinics led by Peterborough clinicians in renal, cardiology, pacemaker review, lymphoedema and oncology.
Working in partnership with Lincolnshire Community Health Services NHS Trust (LCHS), staff from the Trust will now run one gynaecology clinic in Spalding every week and a paediatrics clinic will be added soon.
These additional clinics will benefit south Lincolnshire patients by reducing the time and cost associated with travelling to and from appointments in Peterborough or Stamford. These additional clinics will also enable patients to choose where they would prefer to receive their treatment.
Sally Brown, outpatients sister for LCHS at the Johnson Community Hospital, said: “We are very pleased to continue to work in partnership with Peterborough and Stamford Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust to host and welcome a greater variety of clinics in our outpatients department.
“By working together, patients benefit from improved access and choice closer to home.”
