“This opportunity should not be taken lightly, it really is the best chance yet to be involved in shaping our health services in Lincolnshire, the more people that speak, the more influence we have about our how our services will be delivered in the future. We urge everyone to get involved.” said
Sarah Fletcher, CEO of Healthwatch Lincolnshire.
What will be discussed at the Healthy Conversations?
It is anticipated that the ‘Healthy Conversation 2019’ will run into the autumn and there will be a wide range of engagement events and discussions across the county. Healthy Conversation 2019 will be an open engagement exercise where you will hear about proposed changes to our hospital and community services amongst others. Additionally, there will be wider conversations about bigger investments in our NHS services including mental health, GPs and cancer. You will also be able to ask questions to help you understand what the proposed changes mean to you, which is really important and will help you to ‘Have your say’.
So, most importantly how can you get involved?
