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.
 
Following the publication of the Better Care Together plan, the next steps will be a public consultation, where we ask everyone in the area to let us know how the changes may affect them, and what matters most in the health services they receive. No decisions will be made until after the end of this consultation.

Would you like to help to improve local health services?

Being a Mystery Shopper is different to other feedback methods as it happens just after you have had contact with health services. That way - we can act quickly if necessary.

If you would like to become a Mystery Shopper, you just need to be over 18 and a patient, service user or carer registered with a GP practice in the West Leicestershire area.

Call Helen Cullinan on 01509 567 796 or complete our registration form.

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.

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.
