There are two in-patient wards at Skegness Hospital. A 24 bed unit on Gloucester Ward and a 15 bed unit on Scarbrough Ward which includes three palliative care beds (for the relief of the pain, symptoms and stress of serious illness).

The hospital supports patients back into the community, and their homes, by working closely with other services. If more specialist care is needed, the hospital staff have an arrangement to transfer patients into more acute care with United Lincolnshire Hospitals NHS Trust.

All health care and social service professionals can admit patients to the wards. There is also a self-referral system on Scarbrough Ward for patients who need specialist care at nearing the end of life.

The ward staff work hard to maintain a close working relationship with community colleagues, carers, patient friends and all those involved in caring for the patient.

Lymphoedema is a swelling of the tissues which occurs when fluid builds up due to poor lymphatic drainage. It can involve any part of the body, but is most common in the arms or legs.
