Local Integrated Network of Care Services (LINCS) was established to support integrated working across Primary Care and ensure consistent high quality health and well-being services are delivered for the population, in particular (but not limited to) Primary Care Services.
LINCS was established to support and represent the 30 GP practices covering a population of 168,000 across North East Lincolnshire. 27 practices representing approximately 91% of the population signed up as members when we were established and although 2 single handers and 1 partnership practice did not wish to be members, we actively seek ways of working with them as appropriate.
The Company was not established or conducted for private gain: any surplus or assets will be reinvested in supporting the development of high quality services for the populations served.
Local Integrated Network of Care Services is committed to:
- Providing safe, high quality services in primary care
- Adhering to the NHS Values and Principles
- Delivering the NHS Mandate
- Working in collaboration with other providers where appropriate
- Supporting the delivery of consistent primary care services.
Currently Lincs is commissioned by NEL CCG to provide support to the following areas:
- Primary Care Model
- Workforce Development
- Primary Care Leadership
- Primary Care sustainability
Lincs also provides a Medical Director to Care Plus Group as well as GP support to step down beds.
