‘Step up to Great’ Mental Health services in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland

Health bosses have unveiled plans to invest in and improve the way adult mental health care is delivered across Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland – and the public is being urged to have their say.

A public consultation launched on – Monday 24 May. Everyone is asked to get involved and help shape future services.

Andy Williams, Chief Executive of Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs), who are leading the consultation, said: “The Covid-19 pandemic meant we had to quickly change how we worked – introducing temporary measures – to keep service users safe while continuing their care.

“We want to know what people think about the proposed improvements we’ve made during the pandemic and whether we should make them permanent.  We also want to talk to people about other plans to improve mental health services.”

Gordon King, Director of Mental Health at Leicestershire Partnership NHS Trust said: “We have a significant opportunity to enhance the quality of people’s lives by investing in mental health services provided in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland.

“Mental health heavily influences our whole health and wellbeing. Now more than ever before it makes sense that mental health, just like physical health, is taken care of and maintained. To do this the NHS locally is investing more in local services to dramatically improve urgent and community care and treatment to improve people’s lives.

The consultation runs until Sunday 15 August 2021. The CCGs want to know what people think about the proposals to improve mental health care.
