Who we are

West Leicestershire CCG was established in 2011 in line with the Health and Social Care Bill (now the Health and Social Care Act 2012) when CCGs were established to replace Primary Care Trusts (PCTs) so that healthcare commissioning can be led by GPs and other clinicians.

WL CCG plans and purchases NHS services for a population of 366,000 with a commissioning budget of £362 million. It covers three district council areas, North West Leicestershire, Charnwood, and Hinckley & Bosworth, and   document 48 GP practices (137 KB) . The GPs and practice teams through locality meetings play a key role in making clinically-led commissioning a reality.

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. Download the BCT Brochure.

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.

The NHS is going through many changes and no more so than in the Hinckley and Bosworth area.  One of the main aims of the Hinckley & Bosworth Medical Alliance is to make people more aware of the things patients can do to keep healthy.  Trips to the GP surgery can sometimes be avoided if people know what help there is available to keep healthy and how to treat minor ailments themselves.

Many new health services have been introduced and to help the public understand more of these an event is planned by your GP surgery, The LPT (Leicestershire Partnership Trust) who supply the District Nurses, the ILT (Integrated Locality Team), and the Hinckley & Bosworth Medical Alliance at the Mary Forrayn Centre Leicester Rd, Hinckley LE10 1LW on Sept 17th (3pm until 6pm).  Lots of services will have displays and experts in each area there to answer questions about what is on offer in the Hinckley & Bosworth area. 

One of the stalls at the event will be for representing FLiC (Family Lifestyle Club) - This is an 8 week course for families keen to learn more about becoming fit, healthy and managing their weight.

Some of the other services in attendance are

  • Loros – The Leicestershire Hospice Charity
  • Carers support - local support for all Carers of any age.
  • Pharmacist Support – Self Care Drugs
  • Patient Participation Groups – find out how you can have a voice at your GP surgery as well as learn something about extra services on offer.
  • …and many more

Everyone is welcome and light refreshments will be available.
