United Lincolnshire Hospitals NHS Trust remains in a major incident following a fire at Lincoln County Hospital in the early hours of Tuesday morning.
Patients and staff were safely evacuated from the Emergency Department as a result of the fire at approximately 3am. Nobody was injured.
Our Emergency Department (A&E) remains closed at this time.
The adjoining Lincoln Urgent Treatment Centre has reopened with a reduced service.
While we work to reopen our Emergency Department, we ask that you do not attend the department. If you require non-life-threatening urgent or emergency care, please call 111 or visit NHS 111 online for advice on the most appropriate service for your needs. Please continue to call 999 for life-threatening emergencies.
The fire has resulted in extensive damage to a room within our x-ray, CT and MRI imaging suites. We continue to offer our full support to the ongoing police and fire investigation.
Patients who were due to attend a scanning appointment today (X-ray, CT or MRI) are asked not to attend the hospital. Those affected will be contacted directly. Radiotherapy is unaffected.
Outpatient appointments are going ahead with a small number of exceptions. Patients will be contacted directly and their appointments rearranged where this is the case.
The Outpatients entrance to the hospital has now reopened.
