Family health care at the heart of the community
LOCAL GPs have been given the green light to take control of family health care in the borough.
North East Lincolnshire Clinical Commissioning Group (NELCCG) is one of the first groups of family doctors and other health professionals in the country to achieve authorisation. This means the CCG is ready to become the local face of the NHS from April 1.
Dr Peter Melton, pictured, an Immingham GP and NELCCG chief officer, said: "We're now looking forward to working with all our partners to develop world-class health and social care services that meet the developing needs of our community in North East Lincolnshire."
The Health and Social Care Act 2012 passes responsibility for commissioning many NHS services to groups of GPs and other local healthcare professionals. North East Lincolnshire GP Practices will be at the very heart of implementing the necessary NHS and social care reforms for our area. GPs will be uniquely placed to use their local knowledge, experience and community leadership role to design and implement the changes that make real sense for our residents and our area.

Dr Melton said NELCCG is committed to building on the successes of North East Lincolnshire Care Trust Plus.
"The CCG is already creating a vision that will deliver a more joined-up service for patients. GPs, consultants, nurses, social workers and a whole range of professionals are already working together as one effective team, all working the same way with the same goals, so our community can be assured they will be served by the most appropriate professional in the best setting when they need it."
