The next board meeting for Lincolnshire Community Health Services NHS Trust (LCHS) will take place on Tuesday, May 26.

The monthly meeting will start at 1pm in the Royal Oak Boardroom at the trust’s headquarters at Bridge House, The Point, Sleaford.

Items due to be discussed this month include:

* LCHS’s Foundation Trust application;

* annual accounts;

* annual governance statement.

LCHS Chair Elaine Baylis said: “Our monthly Board meetings provide the public with an opportunity to find out more about the organisation, how well we are performing and the services we provide. The public are very welcome to attend and listen to the discussions.”

LCHS runs services across the whole of Lincolnshire with district nurses, specialist nurses and teams of therapists working to keep people out of hospital or get them home sooner.

Four community hospitals provide services in the heart of Spalding, Skegness, Gainsborough and Louth.

Infant feeding co-ordinators, health visitors and school nursing teams work in the community to keep children healthy.

LCHS Out oo hours services include Lincoln’s Walk In Centre and Peterborough Minor Illness and Injury Unit.

LCHS also has the Phoenix NHS Stop Smoking Service and sexual health services to provide advice, information and treatment to improve people’s health.
