Name: Living With and Beyond Cancer
The number of people living with a cancer diagnosis in the UK is set to double from more
than two million in 2010 to four million by 2030. A pioneering new programme is being planned in Lincolnshire to transform how people live with and beyond cancer – and it needs your help. The project is in the early planning stages and the team behind the programme are keen for the views and
experiences of people living with cancer, their loved ones, carers and health professionals to be at the heart of it.
People across Lincolnshire are being asked to make their voices heard by taking part in a simple online survey, available at www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/BeyondCancer by Friday, 24th February 2017

Name: Medicines Management Consultation
We are consulting on how we spend our healthcare funds in order to get the greatest benefit for patients. We think the money spent on items that are readily available over the counter might be better spent on treatments, staff, and essential services that patients cannot get in any other way
This consultation is asking for your views on the four Lincolnshire CCGs’ proposals to restrict the prescribing of:
• over the counter/minor ailment medicines used for short-term, self-limiting conditions,
• gluten-free products,
• baby milk (including specialist infant formula) and
• oral nutritional supplements.
However, these medicines and products will still be available for conditions where clinical need can only be met by prescriptions and no decision will be made until we have everyone’s views at the end of the consultation.
