These services include planned and emergency hospital care, rehabilitation and most community services for the people of South Lincolnshire.

In addition, the CCG’s Primary Care Commissioning Committee, which is also held in public, will take place the same day, Thursday, January 31 2019, beginning at 10.30am at the Springfields Events and Conference Centre.
Dr Kevin Hill, Chair of NHS South Lincolnshire said: “Our Governing Body welcomes patients and the public to this month’s meeting in Spalding. We hold these meetings in public to offer local people a first-hand opportunity to see how we are working to improve health services in South Lincolnshire.
“It’s important that patients have a much greater say in their healthcare and there are a number of ways that they can do that. Most of our GP practices now have a patient participation group which allows patients to work with the practice to ensure services are meeting the needs of local patients. We also encourage our patients to get involved in other ways and more information is available on our website.”
