Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland ICB
Draft 5 Year Joint Forward Plan

Every day our NHS organisations in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland work with partners in local authorities, the voluntary and community sectors, and other public services to support people to stay healthy and lead independent lives. And when people are ill our services are there for them, their carers and families.

The NHS has faced significant challenges over the last couple of years. The impact of Covid is still being felt, but we are making considerable progress improving services

Challenges remain, however, not least the high-level demands on health care services.  People have faced longer waits for elective care (non-emergency/planned care), difficulties accessing primary care and mental health services. 

There is still too much variation in the health of our people and tackling this inequality is key to improving the overall health of our population in LLR.

We have a dedicated and highly skilled workforce in LLR, but we need to retain and recruit more staff.

The first Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland Integrated Care Board 5-Year Joint Plan sets out how we will improve care and outcomes, reduce inequalities in health, support our workforce and become more financially sustainable.

Our services will need to adapt and transform to achieve our ambitions for health.  The Plan is underpinned by 13 Pledges, these are specific outcomes we aim to deliver over the next five years and have been developed from what people have told us are important to them.
