Stamford and Rutland Hospital

Our hospital at Stamford has 22 inpatient beds on the John Van Geest ward and provides a range of outpatient clinic services, a minor injuries unit, and a day case surgery facility. It is also the base for the Trust’s pain management services. A programme to redevelop Stamford Hospital was completed in July 2017 – this saw the installation of a permanent MRI scanning suite on site, expanded facilities for blood taking and outpatient clinics, a new chemotherapy and lymphoedema suite, an improved physiotherapy gym, new administration facilities and a refurbished health clinic facility.
