In order to help people to understand the community health services available to them in Hinckley and Boswoth, we have put together a virtual tour of some of the main health facilities in the Hinckley and Bosworth area, so that you can see the buildings for yourself. You can also watch interviews with Dr. Nick Willmott, local Hinckley GP and clinical lead for West Leicestershire CCG and Caroline Trevithick, Chief Nurse and Quality Lead, as they discuss the current services and what we would like to provide in the future.

We’ve worked with the residents of the area, staff and other stakeholders to:

  • Explain the challenges which are facing health and social services across Leicester, Leicestershire & Rutland,
  • Share the five year strategy which has been jointly developed on behalf of LLR health and social services organizations to meet these challenges
  • Listen to patients, carers and staff about their experiences of receiving and delivering health care in Hinckley and what’s important to them.
  • Co-design how services should look in the future, and how we can achieve that vision

We have worked with patients, carers and staff as well as local stakeholders to co-design how community health services could be delivered in Hinckley and Bosworth in the future, our shared vision for services.

We tested this vision with people to see if it resonated with them. Then we looked at what we could do to deliver what matters most to people. We developed scenarios of how and where this could be achieved, using the resources available to us, and we worked again with residents from across Hinckley and Bosworth to make sure these scenarios reflected what matters most to them.

We are currently in the process of preparing for consultation, working with community representatives to ensure that the options we are consulting on truly address the needs of the population of Hinckley and Bosworth.

This work is all part of the wider Better Care Together programme which will be going to formal public consultation later this year. Check back for further updates, or use the links in the menu on the left to read more about the work that we have done so far.
