BOSTON residents are being asked for their views on shaping the future of community healthcare services in Lincolnshire.

The future of community healthcare services will be in the hands of patients and the public under new plans for one of the NHS Trusts in Lincolnshire.

Lincolnshire Community Health Services NHS Trust (LCHS) is aspiring to become a Foundation Trust and needs residents to get directly involved in how the organisation operates in the future through the soon to be established Council of Governors.

Membership Manager at LCHS Matthew Broughton said: "Making sure our membership is representative of the communities we serve is vital to us and the Council of Governors has an important role to play in that.

The council will be a collection of trust members and representatives from across the community who will be tasked with ensuring the trust is accountable to local communities. It will also have a say in service developments and how the organisation is run.

Mr Broughton added: "Our governors need to be full of ideas about how each of our services could improve, and they will want to make a difference for others to make patient experiences better.

"These elected voluntary members will become ambassadors for their local community, where every single person is a potential patient of our trust."

To find out how you get involved an information session will be held on Tuesday, October 23 at the Len Medlock Centre, from 6pm to 8pm.
