Name: Lincoln Walk-in-Centre Public Consultation
This consultation is part of work to ensure healthcare services in Lincolnshire are of the highest quality and offer the best possible value for money.
Your local NHS needs to become more efficient to meet the challenges it faces. That includes avoiding duplication of services, and helping patients to make the right choices to get the right care, first time.
The Walk-in-Centre on Monks Road in Lincoln was established in April 2009 with the intention of providing easier access to health advice. Since 2014, a number of reviews have been carried out to understand how and why people access and use the Walk-in-Centre. These reviews enabled us to understand the needs of those attending the Walk-in-Centre to develop future models of health services.
Following these reviews, evidence suggests that many people who use the Walk-in-Centre do not need to do so, and can be treated more appropriately elsewhere. The NHS now wishes to consult with patients, the public and other key stakeholders on our proposals to close the Walk-in-Centre on Monks Road in Lincoln and offer alternative services by extending access to GP surgeries, further developing the NHS 111 telephone service, and supporting people to self-manage their health conditions.
The public consultation will run for 8 weeks starting on Monday 12 June to Sunday 6 August 2017. There will be various ways in which you can have your say.
We have arranged three public meetings at: Abbey Access Training Centre, Monks Road, Lincoln LN2 5HU. Everyone is welcome to attend. The meetings will be attended by senior members of the team leading this work, who will explain the proposals and answer any questions. The meetings will take place on:
27 June 2017, 11am – 1pm
28 June 2017, 3pm – 5pm
29 June 2017, 7pm – 9pm
In addition to this, we will be arranging a number of drop in sessions throughout the consultation. If you would like further information, contact our Communications and Engagement Team on 01522 513355 or visit www.lincolnshirewestccg.nhs.uk for details.
You can also contact the Patient Advice and Liaison Service (PALS) on 0845 602 4384 between 9am and 5pm Monday to Friday.

The number of people living with a cancer diagnosis in the UK is set to double from more

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.
