Get involved in re-designing community health services

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 we 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.

We would like to share with you what we have learnt so far about experiences of the service and what matters most to people. We would also like to tell you about other work that has been happening to review community services and how all of this information is contributing and influencing our thinking about how services could look in the future.

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

The event gives 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.

During the event we will work together with you to share our insights and hear how they resonate with you. We will also talk through our proposals for community services and ask for your views.

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.

We would be delighted to welcome you to one of the workshops. We do expect the events to be popular, but appreciate that booking may be difficult, but we would be grateful if you could register in advance by calling 0116 295 4104 to reserve a place, book on line at or email:

A confirmation will be sent to you closer to the event.

In the meantime keep looking out on our website - for other opportunities to get involved.

Kind regards

Ramble - Twyford Wood

Sun, 10 Mar 2019 10:00

The next Cottesmore Ramble will take place on Sunday 10 March, we are heading for Twyford Wood – site of a former airfield, and still interlaced with concrete runways. The walk is completely flat, mainly on good surfaces, and there are no stiles to contend with.

To get to Twyford Wood, head northwards up the A1, and at the Colsterworth interchange turn onto the Bourne road (A151). The entrance to the car park is clearly signposted a little way along that road. The walk will begin at the usual time of 10.00, and we'll hope to see you there! As ever, if you need any further information (or would like a lift on the day), you are welcome to ring John Meara on 812350.
