People across Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland are being encouraged to choose the right health service if they or a member of their family feels unwell this bank holiday weekend.
Over 100 people attended a pioneering event in Loughborough last week which for the first time involved patients and the public in the design of their local health and care services.
Hosted by the three clinical commissioning groups in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland, the unique event was opened by the Professor Mayur Lakhani GP and the new Chair of West Leicestershire Clinical Commissioning Group who organised the event.
A new health Alliance has been formed to provide Community Elective Care services in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland (LLR).
The Alliance has been formed by University Hospitals of Leicester NHS Trust, Leicestershire Partnership NHS Trust, LLR Provider Company Limited, East Leicestershire and Rutland Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) and West Leicestershire CCG.
From 1 April, the Alliance took over from Derbyshire Community Health Services NHS Trust (DCHS) which has provided the Elective Care services in LLR for the last three years.

NHS patients in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland may be asked for permission to share their medical records when they are referred from one NHS service to another.
Today, electronic records are kept in all the places where you receive healthcare. These places can usually only share information from your records by letter, email, fax or phone. At times this can slow down your treatment and mean information about you is hard to access.
