Lincolnshire Community Health Services NHS Trust (LCHS) has cancelled outpatient appointments with immediate effect.

LCHS is working hard with other NHS healthcare providers to prevent the spread of coronavirus and to protect our patients and staff from becoming seriously ill.

Therefore, we have decided to suspend all non-urgent outpatient appointments. We are asking patients not to attend outpatient appointments unless we have contacted you directly. The Trust is conducting some outpatient appointments by telephone or video calling and we will contact these patients individually.

Appointments will be rearranged in the future when it is safe to do so.

Thank you for your patience at this difficult time.
