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.

Future in mind socialFind out about improvements we are making to children's mental health services.

If you are interested in children and young people’s mental health, you’re invited to one of the four  events we’re holding, to find out how children’s mental health services are changing in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland (LLR).

Everyone is welcome at the events, members of the public as well as professionals.

We have already begun to transform local mental health support for children and young people through our Future in Mind plan, which is improving access to a full range of services that meet all levels of need. At the events, you can hear more about our success so far, as well as our plans for the future, and tell us what you think of them. You will be able to find out how the plans have evolved, meet the people who provide the services for children, young people and families and share your views on our progress so far.

Context

Three years ago, the services available were relatively limited; many children were not able to use them and were not receiving the support that they needed. We are now in a position where the NHS, local authority and voluntary sector are working together more closely to ensure smoother movement between different services for young people and new services have been introduced to add to those that were already in place.

These include online support for emotional problems which may occur because of cyber-bullying, peer pressure and academic stress, the Early Intervention Service which gives support to prevent the development of more serious mental health concerns and a Crisis and Home Treatment Service where, instead of having to go to A&E for a mental health crisis, the child can be seen either in a clinic or at home, wherever is best for that child.

Future developments include a new service which will help children and their families reach the right support for their needs much more quickly and intensive community support for children with more complex mental health problems.

Make a difference with your local PPG

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.
