Chief executive of Leicestershire Partnership NHS Trust announces his retirement

Posted: Thu, 14 Feb 2019 14:07 by Parish Council

Dr Peter Miller, chief executive of Leicestershire Partnership NHS Trust announces that he will be retiring in summer 2019, after six years at the Trust.

He told colleagues, "Over my six years at the Trust, I have met hundreds of inspiring, committed and compassionate staff, making a real difference to the lives of people living in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland. It has been an honour to lead the Trust. More »

"We have set in motion some significant transformation work, including the all age transformation of mental health and learning disability services, the CAMHS improvement programme and the community services redesign. Nationally the long term plan has been published, from which we will see an increased focus on mental health and community services. There remains much to do to ensure that as a Trust we can deliver the level of care we aspire to. To help us, we will soon be embarking on an ambitious programme of work to ensure that the culture in LPT is what we want it to be.

"I am proud of the contribution I have made to LPT's improvement journey but feel the time is right for a new leader to take LPT on the next stage of its journey. Our CQC report which will be published over the next couple of weeks shows that we still have work to do to get the fundamentals right, first time, every time, and that we need to increase the pace of improvement. I feel that it is the right time to pass on the reins."

Pete added: "I'd like to take this opportunity to thank our staff for all the work they do every day for patients and their families.

I will remain in post until a new chief executive is appointed. I am sure I will get an opportunity to say some personal goodbyes over the coming months."

Cathy Ellis, the Chair of LPT, added her personal thank you to Pete: "Thank you Pete for everything you have done for LPT over the last six years.

"Pete has championed a values-led culture within our Trust: with respect, integrity, compassion and trust at the heart of everything we do. He has led the Trust with integrity, always choosing to do the right thing; and with compassion, seeking to improve patient care for our population. Pete has encouraged a staff culture based on trust and respect for colleagues, recently initiating work with the national WRES (Workforce Race Equality Standard) team to ensure that our culture is inclusive and welcoming to all staff. Pete's leadership has also ensured we have always delivered our financial statutory duties and met our financial control total.

"In addition, Pete has made a significant impact on behalf of the local Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland STP (strategic transformation partnership), leading the IT, mental health and workforce work streams across health and social care.

All of this is part of the legacy that he leaves for his successor. Thank you Pete, it has been a pleasure working with you and I know you will be missed by staff across the Trust." » Less

New machines mean no more loose change

Posted: Tue, 05 Feb 2019 18:28 by Parish Council

The Borough Council is phasing in new ticket machines at its pay-and-display car parks across Hinckley town centre.

New machines are being installed in the Leisure Centre, St Mary's Road and Church Walk car parks this month with others introduced gradually over the new few months.

The new pay-and-display machines will provide a variety of quick and simple ways for people to pay for their parking.

For the first time car park users can look forward to not having to find loose change as the new machines will accept contactless payment and credit and debit cards as well as cash. More »

Parking charges remain the same at 60 pence for up to an hour and £2.00 for three hours in short stay car parks and £2.50 for over five hours in long stay car parks. For more information about parking charges across the town go to www.hinckley-bosworth.gov.uk/parking

Executive Member for Corporate and Member Services, Councillor Chris Ladkin said: "I'm pleased that we are able to introduce these new machines to offer a modern means of paying for parking, without the need to use cash. These machines will make parking easier for some people and will soon be available in most of our Hinckley car parks." » Less

Get involved in re-designing community health services

Get involved in re-designing community health services

Posted: Mon, 04 Feb 2019 10:30 by Parish Council

Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCG) in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland, the people who plan and buy health services, have started a conversation with people asking them about their experiences of community health services including community nursing, intensive community support services and therapies.

Over the last three months we have been gathering people's real experience of community services provided by Leicester Partnership NHS Trust, whether they are patients, carers, and health and care professionals. More »

We would like to share with you what we have learnt so far about experiences of the service and what matters most to people. We would also like to tell you about other work that has been happening to review community services and how all of this information is contributing and influencing our thinking about how services could look in the future.

We will be offering many opportunities over the coming weeks for you to get involved. Initially we have pleasure in inviting you to attend one of six "interactive workshops' being held around Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland:

Monday 11th February 2019, 2.00pm – 4.00pm, Wycliffe Rooms, 27 George Street, Lutterworth, LE17 4ED

Tuesday 12th February 2019, 6.00pm – 8.00pm – NSPCC National Training Centre, 3 Gilmour Close, Beaumont Leys, LE4 1EZ

Tuesday 26th February 2019, 6.00pm – 8.00pm – Rutland County Council, Catmose House, Catmose Street, Oakham LE15 6HP

Wednesday 27th February, 6.00pm – 8.00pm - Heartwood Conference Centre, Rothley House, Coalville Business Park, Coalville, LE67 3NR

Tuesday 5th March 2019, 2.00pm – 4.00pm, Holiday Inn, 299 Leicester Road Wigston Fields, Leicester LE18 1JW

Wednesday 6th March 2019, 2.00pm – 4.00pm, Leicestershire Voluntary Action, 9 Newarke Street, Leicester LE1 5SN

The events are the opportunity for anyone who has an interest in getting involved in designing future community services to get involved – staff working in acute or community settings, social care staff, domiciliary care workers, GPs, care home staff, patients and family carers receiving or with an interest in community care and people working in voluntary and community organisations. We also hope that we can welcome to the event the patients, family carers and health and care professionals who participated in the research.

During the event we will work together with you to share our insights and hear how they resonate with you. We will also talk through our proposals for community services and ask for your views.

The outcome of the workshops will assist the CCGs to put together a future plan of what community services should look like to ensure they are integrated with other health and care services care and improve the outcomes and health and wellbeing of patients and their family carers.

We would be delighted to welcome you to one of the workshops. We do expect the events to be popular, but appreciate that booking may be difficult, but we would be grateful if you could register in advance by calling 0116 295 4104 to reserve a place, book on line at www.bettercareleicester.nhs.uk or email: BCTComms@westleicestershireccg.nhs.uk
