There are many outstanding maternity and newborn services right across Lincolnshire and for the first time, Better Births Lincolnshire has brought them all together in one place.
Lincolnshire Births & Demographics
Lincolnshire is the fourth largest county in England. The population density is low at 150 people / km2. The road network in Lincolnshire is poorly developed which impacts on the population’s ability to access services including healthcare
In 2015/16 across Lincolnshire there were 7783 births, with 5448 of these births taking place at United Lincolnshire Hospitals NHS Trust, 3278 at Lincoln County and 1948 at Pilgrim Hospital. 222 women chose to give birth at home.
Lincolnshire Children’s Centres offer services and activities for all families and carers with children from birth to five. All centres offer:
- Child and family health services
- Advice and information for families
- Childcare and early education
- Support for parents on a range of issues
- Training and employment advice
- Outreach services to children and families not attending the centre
Following engagement with women and their families we have established four community hubs in Children’s Centres in Lincoln, Grantham, Skegness and Boston, developing the model of care closer to home.
Boston – Norfolk Lodge Childrens Centre
Grantham – Swingbridge Childrens Centre
Lincoln – Birchwood Childrens Centre
Skegness – Skegness Childrens Centre
