More than 500 NHS posts will go over the next five years, according to a report laying out major changes for the county’s health services.

The Lincolnshire Sustainability and Transformation Plan (STP) was released ahead of schedule on Tuesday, December 6, after parts of it were leaked to the media.

Proposals also outlined the possibility of a permanent closure of Grantham A&E to an urgent care centre and maternity services being centralised to Lincoln.

Today, Lincolnshire Reporter received confirmation that just under 550 full-time posts are predicted to be lost over a five year period.
