Fresh drive to involve people in decision making

A fresh drive to improve the involvement of people in the way decisions are made has been launched by the local NHS and North East Lincolnshire Council.

The organisations are adopting a fresh, joint approach to talking, listening and working with the public that will help them to understand the different points of view of local people.

They will start working closer with them to develop the best solutions to help everyone live as well as possible in North East Lincolnshire.

People’s views are now being sought about a draft document that sets out how the council and CCG will work to make this commitment a reality. This strategy has been drawn up with community members, and people from the Voluntary, Community and Social Enterprise (VCSE) sector working as equal partners with the CCG and council.

“While a lot of people already take part in engagement activities and share their views with us, we know there are many others living in our borough who the CCG and council don’t hear from,” explains Rob Walsh, chief executive of both organisations.

“We want everyone to be able to have their say and work with us to develop solutions that will best meet the needs and aspirations of the population of North East Lincolnshire. We’re keen to hear if you think what we’ve included in our draft strategy will help us to overcome some of the barriers that may prevent people getting involved in the plans and solutions to local issues that are very relevant to their day to day lives.”

You can send us feedback about the draft strategy in a few different ways. You can read the strategy online and fill in a survey by visiting
