Health service up for award

Have your say

NHS Lincolnshire has been shortlisted in the Best Use of New Media category at the AHCM Communicating Health Awards.

The achievement recognises how new media supported the launch of the new 111 phone number in Lincolnshire.

The service was introduced in November 2010 helping patients get the most appropriate care for their symptoms, quickly, while reducing unnecessary pressure on A&E and emergency services.

Award winners will be announced at the annual conference of the Association for Healthcare Communications and Marketing on Tuesday, November 22.
