Louth County hospital has announced that new x-ray facilities are to be opened at the hospital, in an attempt to improve the standard of care.
Work was recently completed on the second radiology room, which will allow the hospital to cater for the needs of more patients needing x-ray examinations.
Previously, such facilities were limited to only one room, which was responsible for serving the entire site.
The introduction of this new room is just one part of what is a minor refurbishment for the department at the hospital, as it seeks to improve experiences for staff and visitors, as well as patients themselves.
The hospital's radiology service manager Paul Clark told the Lincolnshire Echo: "The new equipment will allow us to improve the patient journey through the radiology department, reducing waiting times and increasing x-ray capacity.
"We will be able to provide a more efficient service to the trust and accommodate more x-ray requests from external providers such as GPs."
The news comes after the hospital also recently announced the opening of a new resource room, named after a much loved local doctor Madira Jalajakshi, who passed away last year.
