New proposals for East Midlands Ambulance Service stations across Lincolnshire
East Midlands Ambulance Service has announced new proposals on the future location of ambulance stations across Lincolnshire.
EMAS is considering replacing its 65 stations with 11 large hubs, 16 stations and 108 smaller community ambulance stations.
A final decision is expected later this month.
Previous proposals had suggested 13 ambulance hubs and 118 smaller community ambulance posts.
A public consultation was run in 2012 on the original proposals but faced fierce opposition.
Under the new proposals, some of the stations that were previously earmarked for closure would now remain open.
Lincolnshire hubs would be located in Lincoln, Boston and Grantham while stations would be in Gainsborough, Louth, Skegness and Sleaford.
The hubs would be larger than existing stations and would contain maintenance facilities.
The smaller community ambulance stations would only contain rest facilities - with some located in existing GP practices or fire stations.
