Have your say on plans for Grantham Hospital in 'Healthy Conversation'

By KentOnline reporter

The public will have the chance to have their say on plans for the future of Grantham Hospital as part of the NHS’s Healthy Conversation 2019.

Lincolnshire’s NHS is inviting everyone from across the county to take part in its Healthy Conversation 2019 with a series of drop-in engagement events.

An NHS statement said: “We want to hear from our patients, staff and public to help us continue to transform to improve quality, attract staff and be fit for the future. Your thoughts, views and feedback are vitally important to us.”

“We want to know what is important to you and will be sharing information and updates.”

Updates will include:

  • Looking after ourselves and each other – getting this right is the best way to be healthy and reduce the strain on the NHS. You might hear this referred to as ‘prevention’ and ‘self-care’
  • Joined up care close to home – services delivered in the community or your own home
  • Mental health and learning disabilities – one quarter of us will develop a mental health illness at some point in our lifetime so getting these services right is paramount
  • Hospital Services – this year we will be talking with you about these services and the emerging options for their future sustainability
  • Enabling factors – this is how we refer to such things as travel and transport, IT and digital opportunities, recruitment and estates and buildings – not the services themselves but big influencers on our ability to deliver them well.
  • The national NHS Long Term Plan – and how we can make this work best for Lincolnshire.

Grantham’s drop-in event will take place on Wednesday, March 20, at the Jubilee Life Centre, London Road, between 2pm and 7pm.
