Transforming Care Plan
We plan to work with stakeholders to develop good local services and support in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland that will help people with a learning disability and/or autism and those who may have a mental health problem to stay well in the community. Our focus is on ensuring there is the right support to enable timely hospital discharge and providing early multi-disciplinary support for people at risk, in order to avoid admission. This will include good support for carers, including through the remodelling of our short breaks offer, the proactive implementation of personal health budgets, and working with local NHS, care providers, housing providers and the local workforce to develop services and support to meet current and future need. This will reduce our use of non-secure and low secure inpatient beds by 50%.
Transformational Plan for mental health in children and young people
Transforming emotional health and wellbeing services for children and young people
The Department of Health’s Task Force Report, “Future in Mind: Promoting and improving our children and young people’s mental health and wellbeing” (February 2015) looked at how to make it easier for children and young people to access help and support when needed and to improve how children and young people’s mental health services are organised, commissioned and provided. As a result they published a national ambition for how to transform children and young people’s services.
In 2015 health and care organisations in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland set out on a five-year journey to improve and transform the mental health and wellbeing services for local children and young people.
Year one, 2015: Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland’s Transformational Plan was produced, setting out a multi-agency approach to improve mental health and wellbeing in children and young people up to the age of 25.
Year two, 2016: In keeping with national requirements, this is the next edition of our local plan which describes the direction of travel for 2017- 2018 and the next phase of the transformation journey.
Year three, 2017: The next phase of the transformation journey is to build on what has already been achieved, and ensure that all of the service providers work together to ensure children and young people have smooth access to the right care to meet their needs.
Years four to seven, 2018-2020: In 2018-2020, we are focussed on ensuring that all of our service providers work together to make it easy for our children and young people to access a range of services. We will deliver a new triage and navigation service to ensure that children and young people reach the right service to meet their needs more quickly. We will also work with our service providers, through our new monthly Provider Network meetings, to improve the way that different agencies work together, so that children and young people can move easily from one service to another in response to their changing needs.
We continue to explore opportunities to improve our services and to use resources efficiently.
Clinical Quality Audit Report
The local NHS across Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland (LLR) involving the three Clinical Commissioning Groups, University Hospitals of Leicester NHS Trust and Leicestershire Partnership NHS Trust published the results of a system-wide audit of the quality of care across organisations for patients who died in our care in August.
The report is a comprehensive look at the quality of care across the local NHS. It shows the findings of an audit which partners committed to undertaking following the publication of a similar audit carried out in 2014.
