MP Boles: I'll help with hospital staff recruitment

Martin Slack

BBC Lincolnshire Live

The MP for Grantham Nick Boles says he'll do all he can to help in the recruitment of extra staff for the town's A&E department. 

Mr Boles made the promise after campaigners against the current overnight closure of the unit took their fight to London as part of a protest yesterday. 

United Lincolnshire Hospitals Trust (ULHT) says it took the decision to close the department overnight for the safety of patients - and will return to 24-hour cover but only when it's safe to do so.

Mr Boles says he's "not convinced" that the town's A&E department will re-open at night next month. 

Hospital managers have said that's their aim.
