Multi-million pound investments in facilities at hospitals in Grimsby, Scunthorpe and Goole
HOSPITALS serving Grimsby, Scunthorpe and Goole have benefited from multi-million-pound investment.
Despite Northern Lincolnshire and Goole Hospitals NHS Foundations Trust having to save £15 million per year until 2014 – as part of a four-year drive to save £20 billion nationally – bosses say they are committed to improving services.
Some of the investments made over the past year include:
An initiative where family nurses work with women under the age of 20 who are pregnant with their first child.
