Wards at Scunthorpe General Hospital

Please note that visiting restrictions may be in place on some or all of our wards. Please read the current visiting guidance for more information
Communication with hospital wards
We would ask that you please bear with us at this difficult time as we are aware that at times, due to our staff prioritising patient care, we are unable to answer phones and communicate with relatives as often or as timely we would like to.

We ask that all communication is channelled through one person at this time, to reduce the number of calls into the wards. If you cannot get through when you call the wards to enquire about your loved one, you can contact the Patient Contact Helpline on 03033 306666 between the hours of 9am and 5pm, Monday to Friday. Please note, we do ask you still try contacting the ward in the first instance. This number is manned by non-clinical volunteer staff who will take messages and deliver them to your relatives, or help you to locate your loved one or get the ward to respond to you directly.

This team is not able to share clinical information, however, they are able to get messages to the clinical team looking after your relatives, advise you on other options for communication, such as video calling, and will be able to organise drop-offs and collections of belongings for patients.

Alternatively, an email address – nlg-tr.twpatientcontacthelpline@nhs.net – will be manned throughout the same hours. Please note this helpline has been put in place to support connecting people for this period of the pandemic, following feedback from the public that this has become a challenge. This is a short-term solution whilst we see this surge in activity across our hospitals.
