East Leicestershire and Rutland Clinical Commissioning Group is “a group of GPs from 34 practices in the south and east of Leicestershire and Rutland serving over 318,000 patients in Melton, Rutland, Market Harborough, Blaby District, Lutterworth, and Oadby and Wigston”.
They are reviewing how community services are provided locally. They want to make sure patients “receive the best care by offering services which are local, cost effective and delivered as close to home as possible.
“In East Leicestershire and Rutland there are a number of community hospitals and other venues delivering healthcare services. These include:
· Market Harborough District Hospital
· St Luke’s Hospital, Market Harborough
· Rutland Memorial Hospital
· Feilding Palmer Hospital, Lutterworth
· Melton Mowbray Hospital and St Mary’s Maternity Hospital
· GP Practices e.g. Syston Health Centre”
They would like to find out our thoughts and suggestions on what we want from our community services. They are particularly interested in finding out our thoughts on elective care services “(treatment and surgery which is pre-arranged and not urgent)” and Minor Injury Units.
They would like the views of patients, carers and members of the public. To add your views please use the online survey https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/ELRElectivecare.
