Better Care Together is improving health and care services for the people of Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland by bringing together clinicians, health and social care staff and patients.

The partnership will publish a Next Steps for Better Care Together document in July, which will provide an update on the progress we have already made to deliver high quality, sustainable services.  It will also set out our refreshed strategic direction which responds to the feedback on our initial proposals and summarise our plans for our priority areas.  

We will also continue to build relationships with patients, public and stakeholders and offer ways to get involved in shaping future health services.

On this page [see the navigation panel on the right] we publish news, key dates, patients’ stories and the BCT Bulletin, which is a regular summary of our news and developments.

And you can sign up to receive our latest bulletins by email.

“Caring for people in their home is at the heart of what they want to achieve. The challenge is to deliver services that wrap around frail, elderly people to keep them safe at home. We are building up community and social health care, but currently services do not work together in an integrated way and services are not always 24 hours.” Carmel O’Brien, senior responsible officer for the Home First workstream.
