Johnson Community Hospital proposed upgrade to Urgent Treatment Centre backed by Spalding Town Forum
A healthcare shake-up that could see Spalding’s Johnson Community Hospital treating patients for minor head injuries and broken limbs has won strong support from town leaders.
Details of NHS England’s plan to bring urgent hospital care closer to patients were discussed at a meeting of Spalding Town Forum members on Wednesday.
The forum, made up of South Holland District Council members whose wards are in Spalding, was told about plans to introduce up to eight Urgent Treatment Centres (UTCs) across Lincolnshire, including one at Johnson.
