Better Care Together has been set up to create improved and sustainable health and care services for the people of Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland (LLR).
The partnership brings together NHS organisations, working alongside other partners including local authorities in LLR. These organisations commission and provide health and care services for over one million people in our area.
Every day, NHS and council staff support the local population to stay healthy and lead independent lives and when people fall ill we are there for them, their carers and families.
Better Care Together for LLR, has already delivered many improvements to local healthcare services. We have made some great strides but feel there are things we don't do well enough. We envisage a health and care system that keeps people well and out of hospital, moves care closer to home, provides timely care in a crisis and deliver the best specialist care possible.
Our 'Next Steps to better care in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland' document describes our progress and next steps for improving the health and care for the local population.
