timline: {}

Find out about improvements we are making to children's mental health services.

If you are interested in children and young people’s mental health, you’re invited to one of the four  events we’re holding, to find out how children’s mental health services are changing in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland (LLR).

Everyone is welcome at the events, members of the public as well as professionals.

We have already begun to transform local mental health support for children and young people through our Future in Mind plan, which is improving access to a full range of services that meet all levels of need. At the events, you can hear more about our success so far, as well as our plans for the future, and tell us what you think of them. You will be able to find out how the plans have evolved, meet the people who provide the services for children, young people and families and share your views on our progress so far.

Context

Three years ago, the services available were relatively limited; many children were not able to use them and were not receiving the support that they needed. We are now in a position where the NHS, local authority and voluntary sector are working together more closely to ensure smoother movement between different services for young people and new services have been introduced to add to those that were already in place.

These include online support for emotional problems which may occur because of cyber-bullying, peer pressure and academic stress, the Early Intervention Service which gives support to prevent the development of more serious mental health concerns and a Crisis and Home Treatment Service where, instead of having to go to A&E for a mental health crisis, the child can be seen either in a clinic or at home, wherever is best for that child.

Future developments include a new service which will help children and their families reach the right support for their needs much more quickly and intensive community support for children with more complex mental health problems.

Better Care Together – Next Steps to better care in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland - come and join us at one of our events

timline: {}

Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland (LLR) have the opportunity of significantly investing in the acute hospital estate in Leicester and significantly improving services for the benefit of the local population.

To talk about these proposed improvements, NHS partners in LLR are inviting the public to a series of open engagement events to share the plans for the hospitals and maternity services in Leicester.  As an integral part of the Better Care Together programme for LLR, people can also hear about other work underway to make care better for patients – including improvements to the healthcare that patients receive at home and in the local community.

The events will be held between 5pm and 7.45pm.  People can drop in for the whole event or just come along for either the informal discussions on NHS plans for improvements, between 5pm and 6pm, or attend the formal presentations and question and answer session commencing at 6.00pm.

The dates and venues are:

  • Monday 29 October, Loughborough Town Hall, Market Place, Loughborough, LE11 3EB
  • Tuesday 30 October, Peepul Centre, Orchardson Avenue, Leicester, LE4 6DP
  • Thursday 1 November, Civic Centre,  Burton Street, Melton Mowbray, LE13 1GH
  • Wednesday 7 November, Lyric Rooms, Lower Church Street, Ashby-de-la-Zouch, LE65 1AB
  • Wednesday 14 November,  Eyres Monsell Club and Institute, Littlejohn Road,  Leicester,LE2 9BL
  • Thursday 15 November, The Three Swans Hotel, 21 High Street, Market Harborough, LE16 7NJ
  • Monday 19 November, Rutland County Council, Catmose Street, Oakham, LE15 6HP
  • ****NEW DATE**** Monday 26 November, Sketchley Grange Hotel, Sketchley Lane, Burbage, Hinckley, LE10 3HY  ****NEW DATE****
  • ****NEW DATE**** Tuesday 27 November, The Hugh Aston Building, De Montfort University, The Newarke, Leicester, LE2 7BY ****NEW DATE****

The improvements being proposing would reconfigure the three hospitals currently run by University Hospitals of Leicester NHS Trust.  Those hospitals are the Leicester Royal Infirmary, Glenfield Hospital and Leicester General Hospital. 

Under the proposals acute services – where patients receive short-term treatment for an urgent medical condition, or during recovery from surgery - would be moved to two hospitals. These would be the Leicester Royal Infirmary and Glenfield Hospital. 

Some non-acute health services would continue to be provided at Leicester General Hospital, including the Leicester Diabetes Centre of Excellence, GP Access Imaging Hub and Stroke Rehabilitation.

Those plans include building a brand new single site maternity hospital at Leicester Royal Infirmary along with a dedicated Children’s Hospital. At the Glenfield Hospital we want to create a new treatment centre dedicated to planned surgery.  This will mean that fewer operations are cancelled and we can build more wards to treat the increase in patients we are seeing with heart, chest and lung problems.

We recognise that people have questions about the proposals for the consolidation of level 3 intensive care services onto two of our sites and we look forward to the opportunity to explain why this is so important and the impact of this change on the wider reconfiguration plans.

People will also be able to talk to representatives from NHS organisations about the progress being made to keep more people well and out of hospital and provide better care in a crisis, as well as discussing the changes that will deliver more care close to home - particularly for those people who have one or more long term condition and those in need of high quality specialist care. 

We look forward to welcoming people to one of the events to discuss in much more details the proposed plans and discuss the practical benefits they will deliver in the future and respond to any concerns that people may have.  

To give us an indication of the number of people attending each event, we would be grateful if you could register your attendance at www.bettercareleicester.nhs.uk/getinvolved/, email         This email address is being protected from spambots.

Make a difference with your local PPG

timline: {}

Would you like to get involved with our campaigns and make a difference in the care patients receive?

Your GP surgery has its own small team of people who provide a voice for all the patients on the practice’s list. Known as a Patient Participation Group or a PPG, these groups meet regularly to work with the GPs and staff at the practice to improve the way things are run.

The work of PPGs is invaluable to our work  as a CCG too. The feedback we get from our PPGs help shape the decisions that we make and directly influence the services we commission for all our patients and carers.

The Better Care Together Plan - our STP

The Better Care Together Plan - Our Sustainability and Transformation Partnership

The NHS commission and provide health and care services for over a million people in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland. Every day our services support people to stay healthy and lead independent lives. And when people are ill, our services are there for them, their carers and families.
 
Over the next few years, the services we deliver, and where and how we offer them, will need to change, so that they can continue to be delivered in a way that is safe for patients as well as in a way the NHS can afford. The demand for services is growing more quickly than the resources which we have can cope with, as people are living longer and our population is continuing to grow. The Better Care Together Plan explains how these services can be changed for the better to improve care and the patient experience while meeting these demands.
 
In 2017 we held events across West Leicestershire to share the draft version of the plan with patients, family carers and staff to discuss the draft Better Care Together Plan. You can find out more about the events on this page, and download the findings from the STP events on this page.
 
In the 70th year of the NHS the partnership has published ‘Next steps to better care in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland’, a document describing the progress of partners from health and local authorities to improve the health and wellbeing of local people.

From time to time NHS West Leicestershire CCG reviews the services it commissions. A key part of any review is to ensure we take account of the views of local people to help shape local health services. As a patient or service user, for example you can help us improve services by providing feedback on your experience.

NHS West Leicestershire is committed to involving local people in discussions and decisions about changes to local health services through a variety of ways. This could be taking part in a survey or attending a face to face meeting.  

In this section we provide details of the latest opportunities to be involved in our engagements and consultations. We also include details of consultations and engagements being carried out by our partners, in the NHS and local authorities.

Details of all our engagements and consultations will be made available here but to make sure you don’t miss out on opportunities to get involved register for In Touch to receive regular updates. You can also follow us on Twitter and Facebook.
