Louth and Skegness Survey
We are seeking views of the public on the proposed temporary changes to the overnight opening hours at Louth and Skegness Urgent Treatment Centres. The changes would mean that the UTCs would be temporarily closed overnight between 10pm and 8am to help us meet the rising demand for healthcare services due to the impact of coronavirus.
Patients will still be able to get help with any urgent medical issues overnight by using the NHS 111 service available over the phone or online by using the NHS app.
The temporary overnight closure of the Louth and Skegness UTCs would help us to make sure that we can more effectively meet the demands and challenges we’re facing in light of the staffing pressures relating to the coronavirus pandemic and redeploy clinical staff where needed most.
LCHS welcomes the views of the public, patients, staff, partners and local communities on this proposed temporary change.
