The latest draft of Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland’s (LLR) sustainability and transformation plan (STP) has now been published for further public discussion and feedback. This plan, which is available to view by going to www.bettercareleicester.nhs.uk addresses the development of local health and social care services over the next five years, and have been drawn up by health and care organisations from across the region.
The NHS commission and provide health and care services for over a million people in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland. Every day our services support people to stay healthy and lead independent lives. And when people are ill, our services are there for them, their carers and families.
Over the next five years, the services we deliver, and where and how we offer them, will need to change, so that they can continue to be delivered in a way that is safe for patients as well as in a way the NHS can afford. The demand for services is growing more quickly than the resources which we have can cope with, as people are living longer and our population is continuing to grow. The plan explains how these services can be changed for the better to improve care and the patient experience while meeting these demands.
