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.

People in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland are being asked for their views on possible changes to the children’s blood test clinic.

This specialist service, which is also known as the Paediatric Phlebotomy Service, is available for babies, children and young people up to the age of 16 whose GP has referred them for a blood test. It operates from three clinics in Leicester city: Braunstone Health and Social Care Centre, Westcotes Health Centre and Merlyn Vaz Health and Social Care Centre.

The service is currently run by Leicestershire Partnership NHS Trust. This contract is coming to an end in September 2018, which provides an opportunity for Leicester City Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), which commissions the service across Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland, to consider how this service could best be run in the future, and whether any changes are needed.

Two options are being considered:

  • Keep the children’s blood test clinic as one service and one contract as it is now. Depending on who wins the contract, the location of the clinics may change, but all blood tests would be carried out by the same specialist provider; or

  • Split the service into two and have two contracts. This would mean that the service for babies and children between 0 to 10 years old would be delivered by a specialist provider. Children and young people between 10 and 16 could potentially have their service provided by a local GP practice.

People can share their views by completing the survey online at https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/Childrensbloodclinic. Paper copies of the survey are available by calling 0116 295 1123 (Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm) or emailing joanne.ryder@leicestercityccg.nhs.uk The survey is open until 6th May 2018.

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.
