Getting outside is a huge benefit to lots of people who regularly attend one of our Hospital sites. Throughout the pandemic many members of staff explain how a moment to get some fresh air or sit in the sunshine really helped them to have the boost that was so needed. 

We want to give the gardens at the United Lincolnshire Hospitals NHS Trust a good revamp and will be working on a pipeline of works to spruce up, re-plant, dig and paint our way to better outside spaces that will benefit our staff, our visitors and of course, our patients. 

This year, we're keen to see work completed on a flagship garden at Pilgrim Hospital Boston, Lincoln County Hospital and Grantham and District Hospital. Designs went out to a staff vote and our first three gardens will follow an "organic" design. Similar to the design below that has been created for Pilgrim Hospital, Boston. 

We want your support to enable our garden works to take place quicker, and for us to include as many of the courtyards, ward gardens and outside spaces as we can. We want these to be more than area's that are overlooked, we want to care for our gardens and make them gorgeous representations of your local NHS Hospitals Trust. 

One of the gardens that have already had a refurbishment with thanks to funding from NHS Charities Together was the Staff Garden at Lincoln County Hospital, with new gravel, new furniture, a fresh coat of paint and new plants this area was transformed into a tranquil space at the heart of the hospital.
