Governing Body Meetings
Members of the Governing Body usually meet every other month to make decisions about health priorities. These are not public meetings in the normal sense, but they are Governing Body meetings held in public. The main difference is that the public are entitled to come along and listen to the Governing Body discussions but they are not able to take part.
However, the decisions of the Governing Body affect many people in Lincolnshire and South Lincolnshire CCG would like the public to be more aware of the decisions taken.
Preceding and following the Governing Body meeting there is an informal opportunity for members of the public to meet Governing Body members to raise any queries.
Led by local GPs and other health professionals, NHS South Lincolnshire CCG is responsible for the planning and purchasing of health services in South Lincolnshire.
These services include planned and emergency hospital care, rehabilitation, most community services and mental health and learning disability services.
The Governing Body has responsibility for ensuring that the organisation has appropriate arrangements in place to exercise its functions effectively, efficiently and economically in accordance with accepted principles of good governance, standards of business conduct and the Constitution of the CCG.

We welcome patients and the public to these meetings to offer local people a first-hand opportunity to see how we are working to improve health services in South Lincolnshire.
It is important that patients have a much greater say in their healthcare and there are a number of ways that they can do that. Most of our GP practices now have a patient participation group which allows patients to work with the practice to ensure services are meeting the needs of local patients. We also encourage our patients to get involved in other ways and more information is available on our website. Get involved >>
Meeting papers are published in the days leading up to the event and can be found here
