In March 2014, we started a conversation with local people on how they would like co-designed, person centred commissioning of health services to be different.
Over 100 members of our local community came together to start the conversation, sharing their thoughts and experiences from different angles, reflecting on stories and experiences of care; talking about their feelings relating to current and desired experiences of keeping well and addressing improvement challenges.
We are holding our next board meeting from 1.30pm to 4.30pm on Tuesday 8 July.
Members of the public are invited to attend the meeting being held at Parklands, Hinckley Golf Club, Leicester Road, Hinckley, Leicestershire LE10 3DR.
Better Care Together: A blue print for health and social care in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland 2014/19, has been launched in June and presents a vision for the future shape of health and social care across Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland (LLR).
Care homes across West Leicestershire will take centre stage and welcome the public through their doors tomorrow (20 June) for National Care Home Open Day.
The CCG is supporting this campaign which aims to change perceptions of residential care by connecting residents with their local communities and reminding people that care homes are filled with unique, intelligent and charming characters, and are run by special people who really care.
Older people, relatives and carers across West Leicestershire are being offered advice on taking positive action to stay steady on their feet and prevent falls during National Falls Awareness Week (16-23 June).
The CCG is marking national Carers Week (9-14 June) by encouraging young carers not to care in silence and isolation but to seek support if they care for a relative and haven’t told anyone officially.
A young carer is someone aged 18 or under who helps look after a relative who has a condition such as a disability, illness, mental health condition, or a drug or alcohol problem.
Members of the public are invited to attend our next board meeting on Tuesday 10 June from 1.30pm to 4.30pm in boardrooms 1 and 2 at the CCG’s headquarters at 55 Woodgate, Loughborough, LE11 2TZ.
The CCG plans and pays for many of the NHS services for people living in Hinckley and Bosworth, North Charnwood, North West Leicestershire and South Charnwood, including hospitals, mental health services and community healthcare.
Patient Participation Groups (PPGs) in West Leicestershire are encouraging members of the community to get involved in helping to shape local health services ahead of Patient Participation Awareness Week (2-7 June).
Made up of working groups of volunteer patients, PPGs give ordinary people a voice and empower them to help shape and improve the quality of GP care and ensure healthcare services are responsive to patient needs and priorities.
Following a recent public consultation, a paper into the future of community health services in the Ashby area was presented to the boards of West Leicestershire Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), which plans and pays for local health services, and Leicestershire Partnership NHS Trust (LPT), which provides community health services.
The boards were asked to review the outcome of the consultation and make a decision regarding future models of care and the future of Ashby and District Hospital.
