Extended GP hours available in East Lindsey

Lincolnshire and District Medical Services will be providing an extended access hub service in East Lindsey, which will see them providing access to GP services at evenings and weekends for all patients registered with a practice within the East Lindsey locality. The service started on 24th September 2018.

Patients can now see a GP at a clinic based at the Woldside building at County Hospital Louth LN11 0EU, between the hours of 18.30 to 20.00 Monday to Friday (including Bank Holidays) and 08.30 to 16.45 Saturday and Sunday.

All appointments are all pre-bookable and patients should contact their own GP practice to access these or call 111 when their practice is closed.

This scheme is part of a wider plan to strengthen Lincolnshire East CCG’s out-of-hospital strategy, integrate care within the community and improve collaborative working between local practices to deliver more joined-up GP services.

Dr Neal Parkes, GP and CEO at LADMS said:

“We are pleased to be offering this service to the patients in the East Lindsey locality, which will be particularly beneficial to those who struggle to get an appointment during the daytime because of other commitments everyday which can include a busy work life and school commitments. 

“We hope the scheme will reduce some of the pressure on other local health services, such as accident and emergency, urgent care and out of hours services, which people often turn to if they can’t see a family doctor.  This is all part of our commitment to making our local GPs more accessible and for patients to get the care they need when they want it.”

“Extended access is just the tip of the iceberg of what the hub can offer in terms of the range of services that could benefit our patients in the future.”

The practices taking part are: Binbrook Surgery, Caistor Health Centre, New Coningsby Surgery, The Old Vicarage in Horncastle, James Street in Louth, East Lindsey Medical Group (Newmarket and Wolds Practices), Market Rasen Surgery, Marsh Medical Practice, North Thoresby Practice, Woodhall Spa New Surgery, Tasburgh Lodge Surgery in Woodhall Spa and The Wragby Surgery.

 

 

 

 

In Times of Bereavement

In the unfortunate event that a person has passed away, there are three things that must be done in the first few days;

  • Get a medical certificate from your GP or hospital doctor (this is necessary to register the death)
  • Register the death within 5 days (8 days in Scotland). You will then receive the necessary documents for the funeral.
  • Make the necessary funeral arrangements.

Register the death

If the death has been reported to the coroner (or Procurator Fiscal in Scotland) they must give permission before registering the death.

You can register the death if you are a relative, a witness to the death, a hospital administrator or the person making the arrangements with the funeral directors.

You can use the ‘Register a Death’ page on the gov.uk website that will guide you through the process. This will also explain the registration process for Scotland and Northern Ireland.

Arrange the funeral

The funeral can usually only take place after the death is registered. Most people use a funeral director, though you can arrange a funeral yourself.

Funeral directors

Choose a funeral director who’s a member of one of the following:

These organisations have codes of practice - they must give you a price list when asked.

Some local councils run their own funeral services, for example for non-religious burials. The British Humanist Association can also help with non-religious funerals.

Arranging the funeral yourself

Contact the Cemeteries and Crematorium Department of your local council to arrange a funeral yourself.

Funeral costs

Funeral costs can include:

  • funeral director fees
  • things the funeral director pays for on your behalf (called ‘disbursements’ or ‘third-party costs’), for example, crematorium or cemetery fees, or a newspaper announcement about the death
  • local authority burial or cremation fees

Funeral directors may list all these costs in their quotes.
