Q5. How do HWL ensure local people are represented at decision making level?

11th March 2015

Healthwatch Lincolnshire have been invited to provide representation on health and care boards such as the 4 Lincolnshire Clinical Commissioning Groups, Lincolnshire Health Scrutiny Committee, Lincolnshire Strategic Cancer & Palliative Care Boards, Adult Safeguarding Board, Learning Disability Partnerships, LCHS Patient Public Staff Stakeholder Engagement Board as well as observer roles at United Lincolnshire Hospital Trust main board and internal cancer board.

In fact we are attending well over 30 different committees and boards across Lincolnshire and the region.  The purpose of this representation is to make sure the information we are receiving from patients, carers and service users is shared with the people delivering the services and making decisions about future service needs as well as picking up other important information that will help us influence where services need to change.
