St Barnabas’ Inpatient Unit will be closing temporarily for essential maintenance and improvement works.

10th May 2022

St Barnabas Hospice’s Inpatient Unit on Nettleham Road, Lincoln will be temporarily closing during the summer months to undertake essential maintenance and improvement works. Construction will commence in early -June with a planned completion by mid-October 2022.

During the construction works, St Barnabas will remain committed to continuing to provide outstanding care to our patients and their families. Our clinical staff will be redeployed to work in the community alongside our existing community services or other inpatient settings across the county.

St Barnabas Hospice Lincolnshire is one of the largest charities in the county, supporting more than 10,500 patient and families each year. The charity provides Inpatient support and community care through Wellbeing Centres in Lincoln, Boston, Spalding, Louth, and Grantham. The remedial work is part of the Hospice’s long-term ambition to maintain high quality care for the people of Lincolnshire.

Michelle Webb, Director of Patient Care explains;

I am delighted that we have a confirmed date for these essential works to improve our patient and families experience at our Inpatient Unit in Lincoln. To be able to complete this work as efficiently and safely as possible, our care from the site will be paused until October 2022. We are working very closely with our contractor and project delivery team to minimise disruption to our patients, staff, and the wider healthcare community

 Everyone connected with the Hospice is committed to providing the best facilities and infrastructure for our patient, their families, and our staff. We look forward to welcoming everyone back to our fully refurbished unit in early autumn 2022.
