Public invited to Skegness event to find out more about local services

Wednesday 22nd March March 2017 - 10.30am - 4.00pm

Embassy Theatre, Skegness

The services provided locally by the NHS, social care and the voluntary sector are the focus of a networking event being held in Skegness on Wednesday 22nd March.

Open to the public, the event is being run by Lincolnshire East Clinical Commissioning Group, and will be held at the Embassy Theatre, Skegness, between 10.30am – 4.00pm.

"We are keen to promote local services, particularly health, social care and the voluntary sector, to residents of Skegness and surrounding areas," explains Kerry Parkinson, Lincolnshire East CCG. "A range of organisations will be attending our event to promote their own services and we hope that it will be a good networking opportunity for them, as well as providing the chance for residents to understand what we do."

In the future there is likely to be greater focus on providing more care closer to home, alongside services that are better joined up and can help address issues such as bad patient experiences, due to high demand and stretched resources, and fragmented community support.

"Focusing on bringing together all of the various specialties so that we can care for people closer to home will ultimately help avoid unnecessary hospital stays and re-admissions," adds Kerry. "As a CCG we want to do what we can to help coordinate the best possible care for patients, and we are encouraging the public and organisations alike to attend our networking event."

Whilst the networking event on 22nd March will be open to the public between 10.30am and 3.30pm, there will be an opportunity for attending organisations to network before and after the event. Members of the public are welcome to attend and do not need to pre-book. If your organisation would like to attend please email kerry.parkinson@lincolnshireeastccg.nhs.uk
