Our principles

The Better Care Together Partnership will reshape health and care services in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland throughout the next five years. 

Our objective is to deliver better health outcomes for local people and to create a sustainable healthcare system. The principles we adhere to are:

Work as one team across boundaries, united in overcoming challenges and sharing responsibility to provide the best service and outcomes to patients. We want people to move through the system seamlessly, unaware that different organisations are working together to care for them. 

High quality, person-centred care for local people across the patch from home to hospital and back again. We want to maintain the health and wellbeing of local people, ensure the best possible outcomes for them when they need treatment or care, wherever they live throughout Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland. 

Efficiency and best value to make the most of every pound we have to spend in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland by sharing resources, cutting duplication, waste and delay and innovating to overcome the challenges we face. This includes setting up new systems to care for people at home and in their local community, as well as using IT to share patient records and offer new services. 

Support and nurture a committed health and social care workforce by helping staff to develop new skills and understanding, encouraging them to be the best, promoting high morale and managing talent and resources. We will be asking staff to work in different ways, in different places and with different people and organisations. We want to give them the skills and set up the system in a way that allows them to do a great job for local people.
