Public invited to Governing Body

Patients and the public are invited to the next Governing Body Meeting in public of NHS South West Lincolnshire Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), which will take place on Wednesday, 22 November 2017, from 10.30am at the Jubilee Church Life Centre, 1-5 London Road, Grantham NG31 6EY.

Led by local GPs and other health professionals, NHS South West Lincolnshire CCG is responsible for the planning and purchasing of health services in Grantham, Sleaford, surrounding villages and South West Lincolnshire. 

These services include planned and emergency hospital care, rehabilitation, most community services and mental health and learning disability services.

The agenda and papers for the meeting will be available via the CCG’s website at http://southwestlincolnshireccg.nhs.uk/about-us/key-documents/2017-2018 as are future meeting dates.

Dr Dave Baker, GP and Acting Chair of NHS South West Lincolnshire said:

“Our Governing Body welcomes patients and the public to this month’s meeting in Grantham.  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 West 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.”
