Welcome to Lincolnshire NHS. In our county, the NHS serves 770,000 people, 10,000 of whom use it every day. 12,500 people are employed by it directly, with a further 2,000 staff across GP practices, pharmacies and similar.
In Lincolnshire we have one Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), NHS Lincolnshire CCG, which buys healthcare services for the population from our main NHS Providers (as well as from other organisations, such as specialist charities).
United Lincolnshire Hospitals NHS Trust (ULHT)
United Lincolnshire Hospitals NHS Trust (ULHT) provides accident and emergency, outpatients, inpatient and maternity services in the acute hospitals in Lincoln County Hospital, Pilgrim Hospital, Boston and Grantham and District Hospital.
Lincolnshire Community Health Services NHS Trust (LCHS)
Lincolnshire Community Health Services NHS Trust (LCHS), delivers community-based services aimed at supporting people to manage their own health at home and in community hospitals: County Hospital Louth, John Coupland Hospital, Gainsborough, Johnson Community Hospital, Spalding, Skegness Hospital.
Lincolnshire Partnership NHS Foundation Trust (LPFT)
Lincolnshire Partnership NHS Foundation Trust (LPFT) provides specialist health services for people with learning disabilities and mental health problems.
These are supported by primary care services in the local communities such as GP practices, support services and voluntary organisations.
Whilst the Lincolnshire population is served by a number of acute hospital trusts, United Lincolnshire Hospitals NHS Trust (ULHT) is by far the largest provider in terms of the number of residents cared for.
Working across the whole of Lincolnshire’s NHS is the Sustainability and Transformation Partnership (STP). The STP is made up of doctors, nurses, health practitioners, care providers, voluntary groups, managers, council officials and the most important partner – the population of Lincolnshire. Through several focussed programmes of work, the STP aims to build a health and care system fit for the future, where everyone understands their local health and care provision and everyone who needs to access our services gets the best possible treatment at the right time.
