About the Trust
The United Lincolnshire Hospitals NHS Trust (ULHT) was formed in April 2000 by the merger of the three former acute hospital trusts in Lincolnshire, creating one of the largest trusts in the country.
We provide a comprehensive range of hospital-based medical, surgical, paediatric, obstetric and gynaecological alongside our diagnostic and outpatients services to the 700,000+ people of Lincolnshire and beyond.
Our healthcare services are delivered by approximately 7,800 highly trained staff and volunteers. Our services cost £360m each year to provide, most of which are bought by NHS Lincolnshire (PCT).
We invest around £18 million each year in improving our clinical services by replacing and upgrading medical equipment, modernising estate and facilities and improving information and technology infrastructure. Each year, we treat more than 180,000 accident and emergency patients and carry out more than 69,000 procedures.
