The trust in charge of Grantham Hospital had to get a £26.4 million bail-out from the Government to cover an overspend in 2013/14.

United Lincolnshire Hospitals Trust was one of 15 NHS bodies that bidded for extra Government cash.

The application covered £24.5 million that the trust had to spend to fund new doctors and nurses after being placed in ‘special measures’ by minister Jeremy Hunt.
