Lincolnshire Community Health Services (LCHS) currently provide primary medical services at The Sidings Medical Practice in Boston under a caretaking contract, which is due to end on the 30 June 2022. Lincolnshire Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) will undertake a full procurement to find a provider for a new contract starting on 1 July 2022, to ensure the continuation of primary medical services within the area. Patients should be reassured that there will be no changes to the surgery opening hours and this process is to ensure services continue to be provided from The Sidings Medical Practice.
As part of the procurement, the CCG will engage with patients, their families and carers to find out their views, before a full procurement process to find a provider commences.
Patient Engagement Events
We will be holding two patient engagement events to give patients an opportunity to shape what services are offered as part of the new contract. These will be held on:
Saturday, 11 September 2021, 8:30am – 12:00pm at the Boston Marketplace, PE21 6EJ – Stall (near the NatWest bank)
Thursday, 16 September 2021, 6:30pm – 8.00pm at The Sidings Medical Practice , 14 Sleaford Rd, Boston PE21 8EG
In addition to the events, a patient survey will launch today, to enable us to gather the views of our patients, to help us secure local GP services that meet patient needs. We would really value your feedback. The survey can be completed online via this Link: https://nhslincolnshire.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_cwti08wnNabKel8
Paper copies are also available in the practice, or by telephoning 07890 047 409
The closing date for completion of the survey is 24 September 2021
