Building work costing almost £600,000 is being carried out to improve Lincoln County Hospital’s outpatients department.
The first phase of the revamp is the creation of a central reception area for many of the clinics near the main outpatient entrance.
This will be followed by improvements to clinical areas including the upgrade of treatment rooms to improve access for disabled patients, particularly people in wheelchairs.
Signs guiding people around the outpatient area will be improved along with installation of more effective and efficient lighting.
The total cost of the work will be £580,000
