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.

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.

Dying Matters Week 2019 - Are we Ready?

timline: {}

Every year in May, Dying Matters Awareness Week gives us all great opportunity talkopenly about dying, death and bereavement with friends and loved onesThis year, the week will run from 13-19 of May and the theme is Are We Ready?

It’s a question that challenges each of us on several levels. Are We Ready for our own deaths, or the deaths of those we care about? This is a practical question – wills, funeral planning and more – but of course it’s also emotional, even spiritual for some of us.  For many of us, the answer will not be ‘yes’. 

Research shows that most people haven’t taken care of the practical aspects, which include writing a will, deciding on organ donation, and planning our future care.

Local events 

The local NHS will be taking the message out to members of the public during Dying Matters Week with stalls at the following locations:

  • Monday 13th May, Leicester General Hospital, 10-2pm stall in the hospital canteen
  • Tuesday 14th May, Beaumont Leys shopping centre, 9am – 4.30pm, Leicester, LE4 1DE
  • Wednesday 15th May, Stamford Court - LLR Dying Matters Conference: “Are We Ready?  Let’s Talk About Dying”.  This Macmillan Sponsored event is attracting 200 delegates from organisations across LLR and includes national and local speakers; stalls publicising local work and services and a fantastic opportunity to network with colleagues about this incredibly important area of care.
  • Thursday 16th May, Leicester Royal Infirmary, 10-2pm stall in the hospital canteen.
  • Friday 17th May, Glenfield Hospital, 10-2pm stall in the reception area.
