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:

* the patient voice - a mother will be discussing her daughter’s experience within the Out of Hours Service;

* the signing off of the quality account 2015/16;

* to receive the annual accounts, annual report 2015/16 and sign off the annual audit letter.

LCHS chairman Elaine Baylis said: “Our monthly board meetings provide the public with an opportunity to find out more about the organisation, the services we provide and how well we are performing. 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. Infant feeding co-ordinators, health visitors and school nursing team work in the community to keep children healthy. Out of hours services provide primary healthcare to patients.

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