Public consultation on the future of four local NHS services

We have begun a formal consultation exercise on the future of four local hospital services. This 12 week public consultation is our biggest public consultation to date and will enable people from across the county to have their say on how these services might be delivered in the future.

The services being consulted on are:

  • Orthopaedics (elective and non-elective) countywide
  • Stroke services countywide
  • Urgent and emergency care at Grantham hospital
  • Acute medicine at Grantham hospital

As part of this consultation, we will be sharing extensive information on the above services, how they operate now, the challenges faced and our proposals for how they could be improved for the population of Lincolnshire.

We want to engage and involve you in this conversation –helping us to shape what the future of these services look like together. Full details of all the ways to get involved can be found on the Lincolnshire NHS website here: lincolnshire.nhs.uk

This consultation will run for 12 weeks from 30 September 2021 until 23 December 2021.

NHS England & NHS Improvement – Midlands Consultation  Intermediate Minor Oral Surgery Specialist Dental Service Consultation

The East Midlands Intermediate Minor Oral Surgery contracts are up for renewal in 2023 and we would like to involve the public and key stakeholders in shaping future specialist services. The Intermediate Minor Oral Surgery is a referral service for patients over the age of 16 years that provides complex extractions and treatment under conscious sedation, where required for some minor oral surgery procedures in a community setting. The service is provided by clinicians with enhanced specialist qualifications and experience.

A number of service models have been considered to develop the consultation proposals to enable the specialist NHS dental service to be provided at the right time to meet the needs of patients. We are looking for feedback from the public and key stakeholders.

Online survey

Feedback needs to be completed by 5.00pm on 21 December 2021.

If you have any queries relating to the consultation process e.g. require a hard copy or interpretation to support completing, please email NHS England at england.em-dentalengage@nhs.net

Have your say on future services at Cliff House Medical Practice in Lincoln

Patients of a GP practice in Lincoln are being encouraged to get involved in an engagement exercise to shape how services could be delivered from the practice in the future.

Cliff House Medical Practice based on Burton Road and Gresham Street in the city provides NHS services to over 6,000 patients. The current providers at the practice, Mrs Ansari and Partners, were awarded a contract to deliver services from Cliff House in 2018.

Due to the nature of the contract awarded to Mrs Ansari and Partners, the contract is due to end in 31 March 2022. Therefore a procurement process must now be carried out in order to award a new contract from 1 April 2022.

The NHS body responsible for the procurement process is NHS Lincolnshire Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG).

Patients can share their views on services provided at Cliff House Medical Practice by completing an online questionnaire which can be found at:

Online questionnaire

Printed copies of the questionnaire are also available from the practice.

The engagement exercise will end at midnight on Sunday 2 January 2022.
