United Lincolnshire Hospitals Trust (ULHT) is one of the biggest acute hospital trusts in England serving a population of around 731,500 people.

Our vision is to “work together to provide sustainable high quality patient-centred care for the people of Lincolnshire”.

We provide acute and specialist services to people in Lincolnshire and neighbouring counties. Lincolnshire is the second largest county in the UK. It is characterised by dispersed population in towns and in the city of Lincoln and largely rural communities.

We have an annual income of £440 million. Our main contracts are with Lincolnshire East, Lincolnshire West, South Lincolnshire, and South West Lincolnshire clinical commissioning groups (CCGs).

We provide services from three acute hospitals in Lincolnshire:

  • Lincoln County Hospital
  • Pilgrim Hospital, Boston
  • Grantham and District Hospital

The Trust also provides a wide variety of outpatient, day case and inpatient services from a range of other community hospitals operated by Lincolnshire Community Health Services NHS Trust or local GP clusters. These include:

  • Louth County Hospital
  • John Coupland Hospital, Gainsborough
  • Johnson Community Hospital, Spalding
  • Skegness and District General Hospital

In an average year, we treat more than 150,000 accident and emergency patients, over 600,000 outpatients and over 140,000 inpatients, and deliver over 5,000 babies.

The Trust provides a broad range of other clinical services including community services, population-screening services, and a comprehensive range of planned and unscheduled secondary care services
