Need to cancel? Save time, do it online
Following guidance from the NHS nationally, Northern Lincolnshire and Goole NHS Foundation Trust is cancelling non-urgent operations and some routine appointments to allow it to focus on patients needing urgent and immediate treatment during the busy winter period. Please note all cancer operations and time-critical procedures will go ahead as planned.
If you were due to attend an appointment for surgery, as a day case patient or at one of our clinics, during January and it is one of those affected we will contact you directly. We would like to apologise for any delay in your treatment and will give you a new date as soon as we can. This affects appointments at Diana, Princess of Wales Hospital, Grimsby, and Scunthorpe General Hospital. Appointments at Goole and District Hospital are not affected. The national advice, which has received extensive media coverage, comes from the NHS’s National Emergency Pressures Panel and is part of its Winter Pressures Protocol.
Scunthorpe hospital has a state-of-the-art Blue Sky Imaging Suite providing a seven day scanning/diagnostic service and a busy emergency centre with around 60,000 attendances every year.
