NHS Lincolnshire Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) will today begin a formal consultation exercise on the future of four NHS services. This 12-week public consultation runs from 30th September – 23rd December 2021 and is our biggest public consultation to date. It will enable people from across the county to have their say on how these services might be delivered in the future.

The services being consulted on are:

• Orthopaedic surgery across Lincolnshire

• Urgent and emergency care at Grantham and District Hospital

• Acute medical beds at Grantham and District Hospital

• Stroke services across Lincolnshire

As part of this consultation, we will be sharing information on the above services, how they operate now, the challenges faced and our proposals for how they could be improved for benefit of our staff and the population of Lincolnshire.

We want you to be aware of this consultation and provide you with the necessary information to engage and involve you in this conversation, as well as enable you to signpost others as required – so that together we can shape what the future of these services look like.

Everyone is encouraged to share their views using the consultation questionnaire. We will be hosting a number of public events around the county throughout the 12 weeks. These events include public meetings, virtual meetings, marketplace meet-ups and website events. In addition, our website and social media pages will be sharing information throughout the consultation.

Full details about the public consultation, the service review process and proposals, and all the ways to get involved can be found on the Lincolnshire NHS website, from 2pm Thursday 30th September here: https://www.lincolnshire.nhs.uk
