Lincoln Walk-in Centre

The Governing Body of NHS Lincolnshire West Clinical Commissioning Group came to a decision on Wednesday, September 27 regarding the future of the Lincoln Walk-in Centre on Monks Road. The decision members of the board came up with was as follows: ‘Continue to implement plans to enhance primary care services and raise the awareness of the public as to the alternative provision available and subject to evidence based reviews by the LGB in November and January in the key areas of university students, children under 5, additional primary care appointments and access for patients requiring treatment at weekends, to close the Walk-in Centre at the end of the winter period.’

Living With and Beyond Cancer

The four Clinical Commissioning Groups in Lincolnshire in partnership with Macmillan Cancer Support are working on a programme to redesign cancer support services across the county. The first phase of the programme was to develop a new strategy, and as part of that process we engaged with over 400 healthcare professionals. Cancer patients, carers, families and significant others to understand what support already existed, and where there were gaps.

Lincolnshire Health and Care (LHAC)

The LHAC programme was established in 2014 to design a new health and care model for Lincolnshire which would enable people to access the right services at the right time now and in the future. Following over two years of engagement with patients and other key stakeholders, the CCG carried out some final targeted engagement activities in August 2016 to further shape some of the proposed options around redeveloping services for urgent, emergency and planned care, mental health and learning disabilities, and maternity and paediatrics.
