The West Leicestershire Clinical Commissioning Group invite you to attend a special event called Everyone Counts, where they will be sharing their vision and seeking your views on a pioneering approach to experience led commissioning.
The event offers partners, stakeholders, patients and public the opportunity to get involved in the co-design of the local health services they commission. Your challenge and ideas are fundamentally important in helping them to decide how to develop community led approaches to commissioning. More »
The event is being held on: Thursday 27 March 2014, 9.00am to 4.30pm at Burleigh Court, Loughborough University, LE11 3TD
The event is an opportunity for you to share your views and experiences of local health and care services and to make suggestions on how future services could be developed. This will include all services such as the ones you receive from your GP practice, hospitals, community staff, mental health services and others. The event will bring together a range of knowledgeable speakers, but most importantly, workshops that will provide plenty of time for us to listen to you.
They will be providing bacon and egg butties on arrival in the morning, then a buffet lunch, as well as tea and coffee.
Places will be available on a first-come-first-served basis. To book your place please visit the Everyone Counts web page at: www.westleicestershireccg.nhs.uk/page/everyone-counts , by email at: email@example.com or call Helen Cullinan on 01509 567 796. » Less
The people of Leicestershire, Leicester and Rutland will have the opportunity to see how decisions affecting local hospital services are made in a series of public board meetings.
The first takes place on 27 March 2014 at the Voluntary Action LeicesterShire on Newarke Street in the city centre.
Karl Mayes, Patient and Public Involvement Manager at University Hospitals of Leicester NHS Trust said: “By holding our monthly Trust Board meetings away from the hospital, we hope the meetings will be accessible to the people that use our services. It will be a good opportunity to see our senior team in action.” More »
The Board meeting starts at 12.30pm and will finish around 4.30pm.
If you are interested in attending please contact Karl Mayes, patient and public involvement manager, on 0116 258 8685 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.

The Charnwood Flood Fair had been arranged as a result of concerns arising from Charnwood Area Forum meetings following the floods in 2012.
It was felt that a “one-off” event staged centrally would be the most effective way of addressing the issue, ensuring that all key agencies would be present and able to deal directly with members of the public.
257 people attended the Flood fair, which took place on Thursday 30th January 2014 at Loughborough Town Hall, between 2pm and 7pm. A Thursday afternoon had been selected to co-incide with “Market Day” when many extra people come to town. Promotion and publicity for the event had included regular updates on the Leicestershire Forums’ website, several articles in the “Loughborough Echo”, features on Radio Leicester, a poster campaign, as well as personal invitations to Area Forum members. Over 100 people came through the door in the first hour, which was easily the most popular time, and for the first 90 minutes in particular the venue was very busy. Agencies that attended were positive and very pleased with the turnout. More »
Most people anecdotally were generally very positive about the event, even if they did not have time / inclination to put their views in writing, with just a handful of verbal critics. 115 feedback forms were returned, representing 45%, or just under half, of the total attendees; 84% of those who had experienced flooding at first hand still felt “better informed” through attending this event. For those who had no direct experience of being affected by flooding, the figure was even higher, almost 9 out of every ten people feeling “better informed”. Thanks to all those who gave up their time to come to this successful event, and thanks to all of those agencies who attended and answered questions from members of the public..
