South Lincolnshire NHS governing body to meet in Market Deeping
People are welcome to attend the next meeting of NHS South Lincolnshire Clinical Commissioning Group’s (CCG) governing body.
Health services in the area will be discussed during the meeting at the Hardwick Suite, Eventus Business Centre, Northfields Industrial Estate, Market Deeping, on Thursday at 2.30pm.
Dr Kevin Hill, NHS South Lincolnshire CCG chairman, said: "We hold these meetings in public to offer people a first-hand opportunity to see how we are working to improve health services in south Lincolnshire.
"It is important that patients have a greater say in 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 the public to work with the practice in ensuring that services are meeting the needs of local people."
NHS South Lincolnshire CCG is responsible for health services in Spalding, Long Sutton, Holbeach and Crowland, as well as Gosberton and Moulton.
It also runs NHS services for Bourne, Market Deeping and Stamford, including both planned and emergency hospital care, rehabilitation and community services.
Dr Hill said: "We would also encourage our patients to get involved in other ways and more information is available on our website, http://southlincolnshireccg.nhs.uk/"
