Hearing Lincolnshire’s ‘hidden voices’ – equality engagement events

In May 2018 United Lincolnshire Hospitals NHS Trust and NHS Lincolnshire East Clinical Commissioning Group innovated the Hearing Lincolnshire’s ‘hidden voices’ engagement events, as a way to provide people from smaller and often lesser heard community groups a meaningful way of sharing their experience of the local NHS.

It is our vision to hold at least two hidden voices events per year. Some of the events will have a specific focus around the experience of patients and services users from the local areas, and others will focus on the experience of staff working for the local NHS.

Following each of the events a report and associated actions will be produced.

If you would like to raise issues affecting your community or a group with which you identify in relation to your local NHS services, please feel free to contact tim.couchman@ulh.nhs.uk
