Published on: 23rd October 2020

We want to eradicate dormitory ward accommodation across all of our hospital based services. Currently, three of our adult mental health wards in Lincoln and Boston still use dormitory accommodation and we are committed to obtaining funding to convert these environments to individual bedrooms for our patients.

We are currently applying for funding to re-provide these wards to enable us to meet the modern standards of mental health inpatient wards, and we would like feedback from our current and previous patients to help us plan for this.

We are in the process of designing and planning what these wards could look like and it is important to us to understand the experiences of our patients.

If you have been an inpatient on a ward within our Peter Hodgkinson Centre at Lincoln County Hospital  or on Ward 12 at Pilgrim Hospital at any time in the last ten years we would like you to please share your views.

There are several ways you can share your feedback:

  • Simply email us at and let us know what you liked or disliked about the ward environment, and  what you would like to see on any newly designed ward.
  • Take part in our online survey 
  • Participate in a virtual focus group looking at possible design options

To enable us to have clear designs and plans in place for when funding becomes available we are seeking feedback over the next few weeks and would welcome as many people as possible to be involved.

Due to current COVID restrictions we are unable to offer any face to face opportunities for you to share your feedback at this time, however if you wish to share your views our team would be happy to talk to you over the phone.

Please contact us by emailing or phone us on 01529 222245.
