People can have their say on the future development of Grantham Hospital at a meeting next week.
United Lincolnshire Hospitals NHS Trust is inviting members of the public to one of its locality forum meetings in July to give them the opportunity to get involved.
These meetings, run every three months in four towns across Lincolnshire, give the public the opportunity to hear about what is going on in the Trust and its plans for the future, but they also give people the opportunity to ask questions and give feedback.
The trust says the meetings will be an opportunity for people to have an input into the Trust’s five year strategy, looking at areas including finance, seven day working and redesign of clinical services to make them more effective and efficient.
The meeting will also be an opportunity to find out the results of a recent reputation survey of the Trust, and to see the annual plan of work for the year 2016/17.
The locality forum meetings are aimed at members of the Trust, but anyone can go along and sign up to be a Trust member on the day. It can mean as much or as little commitment as you wish.
For some, it will just involve being kept up to date on the latest news within the Trust, for others it can be more active involvement, including becoming a patient representative to take part in visits and inspections or sit on boards, committees or even job interview panels.
The meeting in Grantham takes place on Monday, July 4, from 2pm to 4pm in Meeting Room 2 at Grantham Hospital.
If you would like to come along to one of our forums, or have any questions about becoming a member, please contact the Membership Office at firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone (01522) 572301.

There are other meetings taking place at Lincoln County Hospital on July 14, Boston Pilgrim Hospital on July 18, and Louth County Hospital on July 21.
