Lincolnshire Community Health Services NHS Trust (LCHS) is temporarily changing the way patients access care from its minor injury units during the Covid-19 outbreak
From 6pm on the 7 April 2020, there will no longer be a walk in service at the Minor Injury Unit at Johnson Community Hospital in Spalding, access will now be provided through NHS 111.
These changes will be implemented at the Minor Injury Unit at Johns Coupland Hospital in Gainsborough at 8pm on Wednesday, 8 April 2020.
LCHS is working hard with other NHS healthcare providers to prevent the spread of coronavirus and to ensure NHS staff are in the right places to care for patients as best we can in these unprecedented times.
