NHS Trust appeals for new members

ONE of Lincolnshire’s largest healthcare providers has issued a rallying call to encourage the public to get involved with shaping the future of the trust.

Lincolnshire Community Health Services NHS Trust (LCHS) would like as many of the county’s residents as possible to consider becoming a member of its organisation - meaning they can have a say on how their care is delivered.

The trust provides healthcare to more than 700,000 people, with its services including the hospital in Skegness, some GP practices, out of hours services, community nursing and specialist nursing services.

Almost 4,000 people have already signed up - and now the trust is hoping to have another 3,500 people on board by December.

To become a member of LCHS, complete an online membership form. Call the trust on 0845 602 4384 for more information.
