NHS North Lincolnshire and NHS North East Lincolnshire Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) will be launching a new NHS Community Ophthalmology (Eye) service in September 2018, and they will soon be seeking an organisation that can provide it in our area within the available funding.

They would like to hear from people who have recently used their current ophthalmology service (or their carers) and to hear their experiences and understand what is important to them when designing the new service.

Healthcare services are important to everyone and they also welcome the views of people who may not have attended eye clinics or had treatment.

We are promoting this survey with our partners of the armed forces covenant. The other local authorities involved are:

News story 

We’re asking people for their suggestions of potential locations where a Designated Stopping Place could be established in the borough.

By law the Council must assess and meet the need for both permanent and temporary Gypsy and Traveller pitches.

This is also a key requirement of the Local Plan, a document that provides the framework for future growth of the area.

A Designated Stopping Place is an authorised site that can be used as a temporary stopping place for members of the Gypsy and Traveller community who are travelling through North East Lincolnshire.

The most recent Gypsy and Traveller Accommodation Assessment for North East Lincolnshire, carried out in 2014, found that 15 temporary pitches are needed if the borough is to fulfil the objectively assessed need.

Fifteen pitches will provide space for 30 caravans and these could be placed in one location or split across two or three, depending on the shape and size of the site.

The call for sites closes on 19 January 2018.

North East Lincolnshire Council, the Police and NHS North East Lincolnshire Clinical Commissioning Group (the organisation that plans and buys NHS services for local people) are launching Our Place Our Future, a survey for residents in North East Lincolnshire.

Help us to understand how it feels to live and work in our area, the services that you use and the activities you undertake. What you tell us will help us to measure where you feel things are improving or getting worse, and understand how we can work better with you to tackle challenges and make the most of arising opportunities.

Your views are important and will be used to influence decisions to help create a better North East Lincolnshire.
