Successes and Future Plans Showcased at Annual Celebration Event

Lincolnshire and Peterborough's residents are being invited to help celebrate the work of the area's NHS community teams at a special Health at Home event.

For the first time, Lincolnshire Community Health Services NHS Trust (LCHS) will be combining its annual staff awards ceremony with its Annual Public Meeting on September 24 at The Showroom on Tritton Road, Lincoln.

Health at Home will be open to the public to allow patients, their families and carers, and the wider community the opportunity to see first hand some of the amazing work the trust's staff do on a daily basis across Lincolnshire and Peterborough.

From 12pm, visitors will be able to enjoy a light lunch and browse a selection of stands representing the trust's services.

Britain's most successful female winter Paralympian, Jade Etherington, will open the awards ceremony at 1.30pm, while BBC Radio Lincolnshire's Melvyn Prior will compere the afternoon.

A showcase of some of the trust's services, including how it supports care from the cradle to the grave, will follow the awards ceremony before the annual public meeting begins at 6pm.

LCHS Chief Executive Andrew Morgan said: "We are very proud of the services we offer across the whole of our area and it's a pleasure to be able to share our celebrations with the community. By including our annual public meeting in Health at Home, we would also like to take the opportunity to talk about our plans to bring care closer to patients' homes, and hear from those who use our services about their own experiences."

Anyone who would like to attend the afternoon is asked to confirm their attendance by calling 01529 220300 or emailing membership@lincs-chs.nhs.uk by Monday, September 15.
