Story

We are a Community Group fighting back against all threats to services at Pilgrim Hospital, Boston, Lincolnshire namely Maternity, Neonatal and Paediatrics. We are hoping to raise £500 so we can continue to purchase banners, flyers, fundraising materials and cover the costs to attend events that can help us further raise the profile of our campaign.

We started campaigning in 2016 after the Lincolnshire STP (Sustainability and Transformation Partnership) revealed significant changes to the way Women's and Children's services would be delivered in Lincolnshire. Read our original story here: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-lincolnshire-38366050

Since 2016 we have campaigned tirelessly to maintain Maternity, Neonatal and Paediatric services at Pilgrim Hospital. We are all very passionate about these services, as we have had our children's lives saved thanks to the amazing staff within the Maternity, Neonatal and Paediatric departments.

There is a certain amount of uncertainty for the future of Children’s services & Maternity, due to a major change in the provision of trainee children’s doctors at Pilgrim Hospital.

Sadly in August 2018, despite numerous concerns being raised to our MP and NHS Trust from parents across Boston, Skegness, Spalding, Grantham, Louth, Sleaford and surrounding villages, our Children's Ward at Pilgrim Hospital was closed and replaced with a Paediatric Assessment Unit which only offers a maximum of 12 hour observations. Any child needing more than 12 hours will be transferred to another hospital, potentially out of the county of Lincolnshire. Our Neonatal Unit was also downgraded from 30 weeks gestation to 34 weeks gestation.

This will have financial and emotional impacts on many families in Lincolnshire, not just those who live here but those who are visiting as Lincolnshire.
