Provider Network Meetings


Provider Network Meetings are Changing

Following feedback from all attendees and a review of our Provider Network Meetings held up to the end of January 2018, Healthwatch Lincolnshire has decided to make a few changes to the style and frequency of these valuable meetings.  Under our new style of Provider Network Meeting, we have made the following changes:

  • To hold 4 meetings per year April, July, October 2018 and January 2019
  • To encourage more community groups and 3rd Sector organisations to attend
  • To have themed meetings
  • To encourage networking for all providers and community groups (including information sharing).
