Review of the options being considered for ENT within Northern Lincolnshire and Goole

Review of the options being considered for ENT within Northern Lincolnshire and Goole. The proposals considered centralising the service onto one hospital site, rather than being delivered at both DGH sites. The proposal was based on national best practice around volumes, and also local clinical team recommendations around quality and safety improvements that could be facilitated through centralisation.
