Planned care policies (Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland)

This page contains approved 'planned care' policies of the three clinical commissioning groups representing patients in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland: Leicester City CCG | West Leicestershire CCG | East Leicestershire and Rutland CCG

Planned care is the non-emergency treatment and operations that are carried out in hospital and in the community, with appointments arranged in advance.

This document library is relevant for patients in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland who have been referred for planned care.

The documents, also known as policies, make sure patients receive the best treatment for their condition and are only referred for procedures or operations when it is likely to be effective.

You can use the library to read about when and how non-emergency operations and treatments are carried out (approved policies) and new policies we are considering adding (policies you can comment on).
