Lincolnshire Community Health Services NHS Trust (LCHS), are the primary community healthcare provider in Lincolnshire delivering community-based services aimed at supporting people to manage their own health at home and reducing the need for people to go into hospital.
LCHS cares for thousands of patients every day, in partnership with other health and social care services, to deliver joined-up care in community settings. The intention is to provide good out of hospital care and avoid admissions into acute hospitals.
By providing community-based services aimed at preventing health problems from getting worse, the trust helps to reduce the need for people to go into hospital. The trust works closely with other health and social care services to support a shift from care in acute hospitals, into more joined-up care in the community, close to home.
