Get involved in re-designing community health services

Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCG) in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland, the people who plan and buy health services, have started a conversation with people asking them about their experiences of community health services including community nursing, intensive community support services and therapies.

Over the last three months they have been gathering people's real experience of community services provided by Leicester Partnership NHS Trust, whether they are patients, carers, and health and care professionals.

There will be opportunities over the coming weeks for the public to get involved. The public are able to attend one of six "interactive workshops' being held around Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland:

Monday 11th February 2019, 2.00pm – 4.00pm, Wycliffe Rooms, 27 George Street, Lutterworth, LE17 4ED

Tuesday 12th February 2019, 6.00pm – 8.00pm – NSPCC National Training Centre, 3 Gilmour Close, Beaumont Leys, LE4 1EZ

Tuesday 26th February 2019, 6.00pm – 8.00pm – Rutland County Council, Catmose House, Catmose Street, Oakham LE15 6HP

Wednesday 27th February, 6.00pm – 8.00pm - Heartwood Conference Centre, Rothley House, Coalville Business Park, Coalville, LE67 3NR

Tuesday 5th March 2019, 2.00pm – 4.00pm, Holiday Inn, 299 Leicester Road Wigston Fields, Leicester LE18 1JW

Wednesday 6th March 2019, 2.00pm – 4.00pm, Leicestershire Voluntary Action, 9 Newarke Street, Leicester LE1 5SN

The events are the opportunity for anyone who has an interest in getting involved in designing future community services to get involved – staff working in acute or community settings, social care staff, domiciliary care workers, GPs, care home staff, patients and family carers receiving or with an interest in community care and people working in voluntary and community organisations. We also hope that we can welcome to the event the patients, family carers and health and care professionals who participated in the research.

The outcome of the workshops will assist the CCGs to put together a future plan of what community services should look like to ensure they are integrated with other health and care services care and improve the outcomes and health and wellbeing of patients and their family carers.

The events are expected to be popular, and appreciate that booking may be difficult, but would be grateful if you could register in advance by calling 0116 295 4104 to reserve a place, book on line at www.bettercareleicester.nhs.uk or email: BCTComms@westleicestershireccg.nhs.uk
