  • Health care
    • NHS - residents' views should be reflected in the review.

      As Leader of the Council it has been a great privilege to visit many of our parishes and meet and talk to many residents on a whole range of issues. While the future of the NHS has not always been a topic of conversation I do know how important health care is to all of our residents both young and old. East Lindsey has a population of nearly 140,000 spread over 700 sq miles so the challenge of providing any service is made more difficult by our sparse population and challenging geography.
