St Barnabas Hospice’s Inpatient Unit on Nettleham Road, Lincoln, will be temporarily closed during the summer months to undertake essential maintenance and improvement works. Construction will commence in early June with planned completion by mid-October 2022.
During the construction works, St Barnabas will remain committed to continuing to provide outstanding care to their patients and their families. Clinical staff will be redeployed to work in the community alongside existing community services or other inpatient settings across the county.
Michelle Webb, Director of Patient Care, said: “I am delighted that we have a confirmed date for these essential works to improve our patient and families’ experience at our Inpatient Unit in Lincoln. To be able to complete this work as efficiently and safely as possible, our care from the site will be paused until October 2022. We are working very closely with our contractor and project delivery team to minimise disruption to our patients, staff, and the wider healthcare community.
“Everyone connected with the Hospice is committed to providing the best facilities and infrastructure for our patients, their families, and our staff. We look forward to welcoming everyone back to our fully refurbished unit in early autumn 2022.”
St Barnabas Hospice Lincolnshire is one of the largest charities in the county, supporting more than 10,500 patients and families each year.
The charity provides Inpatient support and community care through Wellbeing Centres in Grantham, Lincoln, Boston, Spalding, and Louth,. The remedial work is part of the Hospice’s long-term ambition to maintain high-quality care for the people of Lincolnshire.
