The BCT plan

The Better Care Together (BCT) five year Strategic Plan sets out the most ambitious change for health and social care for Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland and was launched in late June 2014. It is managed by the BCT programme management team

Last year Health and Wellbeing Boards, NHS Partner organisations and Local Authority cabinets/ executive committees reviewed the plan.

The improved document includes strengthened plans for primary and social care; communications and engagement; procurement and contracting; governance; equality and diversity; managing risk; programme quality management and clinical quality outcomes.

Also included in the revised document is a ‘You said, we did’ outlining the comments and responses from partners.

The three Health and Wellbeing Boards, NHS Partnership Boards, Local Authority Cabinets and Executive Committees have been supplied the approved version of the five year strategic plan, with the Programme Initiation Plan and Strategic Outline Case. 


Key documents 

The Programme Initiation Document sets out the policy of the Partnership Board for the management of the BCT Programme. Over its development, comment and input have been received from EY, the BCT Clinical Reference Group, Public and Patient Group, Implementation Group, senior Finance staff and Chief Officers covering both health and social care.

The Strategic Outline Case (SOC) sets out the business case for the BCT Programme as being the preferred way forward to deliver the plans set out in LLR the Five Year Plan published in June 2014. The SOC is designed to be a 'wrapper' for all the future transformation business cases which will be required for the system to realise its vision. It has been developed and reviewed by external consultants EY through the BCT Partnership Chief Officers, Delivery Group and Finance officers groups.
