Could you help shape the future of the Borough?
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.
The partnership of local organisations are seeking the views and opinions of local people to find out how it feels to live and work in our area, the services that you use and the activities that you undertake.
An extensive survey has been published, covering every aspect of living and working in the area.
The survey responses will help organisations to understand how they can work better to tackle challenges and make the most of opportunities.
Councillor Ray Oxby, Leader of North East Lincolnshire Council, said: “This survey is all about gathering the views of our residents so we can ascertain what they feel is working well, and what areas require improvement.
“Together with our partners at Humberside Police and the CCG, we are working hard to create a bright future for our borough, but we need people to tell us about the services they use, the activities they undertake and the things that they feel are improving or need improvement.
“The survey covers most aspects of life in North East Lincolnshire, but people can skip the bits that might not be relevant to them and return later if they wish.”
The Our Place, Our Future survey can be completed online at www.nelincs.gov.uk/have-your-say.
The information collected will be used to influence decisions to help create a better North East Lincolnshire.

A Clearer View - Transforming ophthalmology services in North & North East Lincolnshire
This survey has now closed.
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 we will soon be seeking an organisation that can provide it in our area within the available funding.
The CCGs are writing a new service specification (a document which sets out exactly how we want the service to be delivered and what it should include). This will be informed by what our members, patients, their carers, staff and the wider community tells us is important to them when we look at making changes to their healthcare services.
We would like to hear from people who have recently used our current ophthalmology service (or their carers) and to hear their experiences and understand what is important to them when we are designing the new service.
We will also be visiting local groups who might want to talk about their experiences. so if you are a member of a community or support group and would like us to attend one of your meetings just let us know by calling 0300 3000 567 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
Healthcare services are important to everyone and we also welcome the views of people who may not have attended eye clinics or had treatment.
We are also holding two focus groups specifically for eye patients, carers, family members and organisations with an interest in ophthalmology services which are taking place on:
Wednesday November 1st from 10am to 12 noon at Meeting Room 1, Centre 4, Wootton Road, Grimsby, DN33 1HE
Tuesday November 14th between 1pm and 4pm at Heslam Park (Scunthorpe Rugby Club), Ashby Road, Scunthorpe, DN16 2AG
Tuesday November 28th between 9.30am and 11.30am at Freeman Street Market in the Seminar Room, Grimsby, DN32 7DS
Please share this information with your family members, friends and colleagues as we want to reach as many people as possible to inform them of these service plans.
For more information, to book a place at one of the events or if you would like a paper copy of the survey or help filling it in, please ring our engagement team on 0300 3000 567 or email email@example.com
