Outpatient clinics, blood clinics and theatre appointments

Lincolnshire Community Health Services NHS Trust is continuing to facilitate blood clinics, outpatient clinics and theatre appointments in its community hospitals for NHS partners.

Systems are in place within the departments to maintain social distancing, with hand sanitiser provided and the request that face masks are worn to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and protect patients and staff from becoming seriously ill. We also ask individuals attend appointments on their own if possible. 

Appointments for outpatients and theatres are arranged through consultants or care providers, therefore, if you have any queries about your appointment, please telephone your care provider directly.

Appointments for blood tests can be made through 10to8.com/book/lincolnshirechnhs/ Once you access the website, there are instructions on how to book your blood test.

If you can’t get on the internet you can call 01775 652083 for Johnson Community Hospital, Spalding.

Thank you for your patience at this difficult time.

Time for tea… and cake!!

The outpatients department have welcomed the arrival of a brand new hostess trolley complete with crockery! The new trolley will provide refreshments for patients waiting for their cataract operations as well as benefitting patients from other clinics.

Bruce Mulraney, LCHS’s Staff Nurse, said: “We’re really proud of the service we provide to cataract patients and the previous trolley had transferred here from the old Johnson Hospital when we moved 12 years ago. We’re extremely grateful for the generous donation from the LCHS Charities Fund. The shiny new trolley and crockery will enable us to continue to provide patients with refreshments and snacks after their operation for many years to come.”

Focus on… intravitreal eye injections

Congratulations to Andrea Cruz-Soares who has taken over the intravitreal eye injections from Danielle Holton following Danielle’s promotion to CTL in April.

Johnson Outpatients run a nurse-led eye injection clinic for patients from Pilgrim Hospital with age-related macular degeneration (AMD). AMD is the leading cause of blindness in people over 50 years of age.

There are two types of macular degeneration: dry and wet. In the ‘wet’ (or neovascular) form of AMD, abnormal blood vessels grow in the back of the eye. Sometimes these vessels leak blood or fluid that causes blurred or distorted vision. Without treatment, vision loss may be quick and severe.

Patients attending clinic will have their pupil dilated before the eye is numbed with local anaesthesia. The medication is then injected into the vitreous, or jelly-like substance in the back chamber of the eye in a quick and painless procedure. The whole procedure takes around 10 minutes and patients are able to go straight home afterwards.

Eye injections are given at regular intervals as prescribed by an eye doctor.

‘Winter Wonderland’ charity ball

The Johnson Community Hospital will be holding its 12th Annual Charity Ball on Saturday, 19 November 2022 where staff, patients and the public hope to raise funds for the Johnson Community Hospital Services.

The money raised over the last 12 years has been used to purchase specialist equipment to enhance the care and services available for the local patients of Spalding and the surrounding area.

The theme for 2022 is ‘Winter Wonderland’ and the committee are hoping it will be another great success and sell out as with previous years. Tickets are available by contacting the committee at johnsonhospitalcharity@gmail.com.
