Better Care Together is the biggest ever review of health and social care in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland and has produced a route map for how services can be transformed.
The voices of service users, patients, carers and the public are an integral part of what the programme is aiming to achieve.
The programme is looking at a number of crucial areas: urgent care including A&E, long-term conditions, such as diabetes and respiratory diseases, frail older people, maternity and newborns, children’s services, learning disabilities, planned care, and mental health provision. It is also looking at other areas of improvement, for example, how many buildings are used and their location, how we attract and keep the best staff and how technology can support change.
The partner organisations in Better Care Together are Leicester City Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), Leicester City Council, West Leicestershire CCG, Leicestershire County Council, East Leicestershire and Rutland CCG, Rutland County Council, University Hospitals of Leicester, Leicestershire Partnership Trust, NHS England Area Team, Health and Wellbeing Boards for Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland.
