Four public meetings in Peterborough this week to influence future of NHS trust
The views of the Peterborough public are needed to help shape an NHS consultation.
Lincolnshire Community Health Services NHS Trust (LCHS) is in the process of becoming an NHS foundation trust. The Trust undertook a robust consultation in 2012 on this with key stakeholders, members and the public.
Since this consultation, LCHS has developed a portfolio of services and now delivers services outside of Lincolnshire. To better represent the communities where LCHS delivers healthcare services, the Trust is now consulting on having a public out of county constituency.
The largest out of county service for LCHS is the Minor Illness and Injury Unit based at the city care centre in Peterborough. To reflect this LCHS is now asking key partners, colleagues and residents of Peterborough for their views on this and the organisation’s plans to become a foundation trust.
To have your say you can complete a short survey on the LCHS website under the Get Involved section (www.lincolnshirecommunityhealthservices.nhs.uk/content/consultation-becoming-nhs-foundation-trust) or attend one of the public events on Thursday, April 14 2016 in the following locations.
