How we consulted on the new service
The public consultation on improving urgent care services (minor injury and illness) in East Leicestershire and Rutland was completed in 2014 and in June the East Leicestershire and Rutland Clinical Commissioning Group’s governing body approved plans to change how urgent care services are provided.
The governing body backed a recommendation to approve the CCG’s preferred option – option three – with some minor amendments.
