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).
New Format for the meeting
The meeting will be in 3 parts:
Part 1 10 am to 11 am Panel of Experts / Providers around nominated theme followed by a Q+A session
Part 2 11 am to 12 noon formal provider update session facilitated by HWL Chair

During the networking session, an opportunity to promote the work and support that your organisation offers to the patient, carer and their families. Bring along information to share amongst attendees and have a chat to them about your service. Spaces are limited, so don’t delay get in touch and book a place.
