"clear signposting"

About: Lincoln County Hospital

Anything else?

Branston Ward is not signed anywhere except in the Maternity wing. It's as if the maternity wing is a separate independent facility. It may be to the administration but it is not to a visitor looking for a sick relative. Please ensure it and all the other un-signposted wards are indicated in the Main Reception Area. Similarly, if one has eventually found the ward one may not have realized that one arrived via the basement. Can the way to the main exit please be clearly signed in the lifts. ie, via the basement not the ground floor.

Dear Malcolm, thank you for leaving your feedback - you make a very good point and I have asked the facilities team at Lincoln County to walk the route and review the signage. As you say the maternity block is to one end of the site but can be reached from the main hospital and we need to make it clearer if people are struggling to find the wards. Thank you again and our apologies for your difficulties.
