Community NHS Trust Board of Directors meeting – 8 September
The next Board of Directors meeting for Lincolnshire Community Health Services NHS Trust (LCHS) will take place on Tuesday, 8 September.
LCHS runs services across the whole of Lincolnshire, helping people to manage their health at home or in the community through general and specialist nursing and therapy.
The Trust also provides urgent care services throughout the county and inpatient services at community hospitals in Gainsborough, Louth, Skegness and Spalding.
In line with guidance on fighting the spread of Covid-19 and in the interests of protecting our patients and staff, the September Board of Directors meeting will be broadcast live via Microsoft Teams.
If you would like to view the live broadcast of the meeting please click on this link at 10am on Tuesday, 8 September. Members of the public can still get involved by submitting questions to the Board of Directors in advance.
Elaine Baylis, Chair of LCHS, said: "Our board meetings provide the public with an opportunity to find out more about the organisation, the services we provide and how well we are performing. The role of our Board of Directors is to ensure that we are providing the highest quality care and improving the health of local people by providing services that reflect the needs of the communities we serve.
"Engaging with our patients and local community is crucial and we encourage people to get involved. It offers insight on our performance and an update on wider issues within the NHS. We start the meeting with a question and answer session for members of the public, however, this time with questions submitted in advance, due to the virtual nature of this meeting.
“We look forward to welcoming members of the public back to our board meetings as soon possible when the necessary steps to limit the transmission of COVID-19 are lifted."
If you would like to submit a question for the meeting, please complete the submission form on the trust’s website or email firstname.lastname@example.org by no later than midnight on Sunday, 6 September. Only one question will be answered per person during the meeting.
