Boston Area Clinical Commissioning Locality is a group of GPs from eight practices in the east of Lincolnshire. We are working together to improve the quality and delivery of services for our patients and to reduce health inequalities across the area.
Our locality covers a mixed population of urban and rural communities. The main industry is agriculture and recent years have seen a significant increase in young Eastern European inward migration. The health of people is similar to the England average but life expectancy is lower - there is a four year difference in the most deprived compared to the least deprived areas and levels of obesity, smoking, diabetes and teenage pregnancy are higher than the average for England.
We have been working to improve the health of our local population and the quality of local NHS services, and over the last ten years there has been a fall in death rates for conditions including cancer, heart disease and stroke, as well as an increase in the number of people participating in activity based recreation from 49.5% in 2012 to 57.4% in 2016. With your support our aim is to build on this work and continue to improve the health of you, our patients.
Patients registered at all practices across East Lincolnshire are now able to access pre-booked appointments for routine GP services in the evenings and weekends. The booked appointment will take place at one of three local extended access hubs. All appointments can be booked through your own GP practice or through NHS111 when your practice is closed, either for same day booked appointments or to book in advance.
