We would like to invite you along to an event, to talk to you about the current Non-Emergency Patient Transport Service in Lincolnshire.
At the event, we would like to hear you views on the service, and listen to any thoughts or ideas you have on how the service could be delivered in future.
There will be two events taking place within the NHS Lincolnshire East CCG area:
To confirm your attendance please email Andrew Rix: firstname.lastname@example.org. Or telephone Debbie Evans / Claire Hornsby on 01522 515305.
Why your input is important?
The Non-Emergency Patient Transport Service is paid for by local NHS Commissioners; to provide transport to and from hospital, for people with a medical need.
We are currently in a contract procurement process (to re-purchase the service) and intend to enter into a new contract with a provider in July 2017.
As healthcare commissioners, we would like to involve you in the contract procurement process, so that your opinions can be taken into account when the contract is written.
We would like to hear about your health care needs, how the service can support you to stay healthy, or access the right healthcare service when you need them. Ultimately, we need to understand what an excellent service would feel like for you.
What will we do with what you tell us?
We, the commissioners will be the architects, working with a specification provided by the government (as the minimum provision for healthcare). Your feedback will then be used to ensure that the service works for you.
Who are the NHS Commissioners?
The team who want to talk to you are from NHS Lincolnshire West CCG, who are our neighbouring CCG, and part of the wider team responsible for re-designing the contract for the Non-Emergency Patient Transport Service.
Who else is involved?
The CCGs are working with the current service provider, other NHS commissioners and healthcare providers in developing the contract.
Everyone is working together to provide the best service possible – for you
Thank you and we look forward to hearing from you.
