Celebrating our volunteers.

We have contributed to a number of events in West Leicestershire, talking to people about what we believe should be different about services in the future including having more care provided in the community, so that you only go to acute hospitals when they are acutely ill or when it is a planned procedure that cannot be done in a community setting.  These events have been extremely well attended and attendees have voiced a wide range of opinions on the proposals which the CCG (Clinical Commissioning Group) are capturing.

We continue to represent the patient voice in Hinckley & Bosworth and West Leicestershire by meeting regularly with other patient groups and health professionals

Leicestershire Leicester & Rutland have a plan, known as our “Sustainability and Transformation Plan”, which builds on the work of our Better Care Together programme and explains how we believe care can best be delivered over the next five years. This was developed together with our patients, carers and health and social care staff.

As part of this, Hinckley & Bosworth also has a team, including patient representation from Barwell & Hollycroft surgery, called the “Integrated Neighbourhood Team” whose aim is to bring together the work of the NHS and Social services so that support and care for patients is more “joined up”

We are committed to supporting people to stay healthy and lead independent lives and believe that our plans will help to achieve this.  We understand that the thought of change brings uncertainties for people, which is why we are committed to communicate with our patients through PPG meeting – virtually as well as at the surgery when circumstances allow.

We hope that you will be able to come along or attend our meetings so you can share your ideas as well as listen to others.  We would also be grateful if you could circulate the invitation to any other Barwell & Hollycroft patients and members of the telephone Befriending team. We want as many people as possible to be aware of them and have the opportunity to attend.

Information is posted in both surgeries as to other events that may be taking place so please read the PPG noticeboard at either Barwell or Hollycroft surgeries once access is available again.

We have had a succession of meetings in the past few years. These have been well attended by Patients, Practice GPs and Practice Staff.

We have discussed organ donation, computers in the NHS and upcoming changes of staff in the surgery. GP’s have given talks on Flu and Shingles vaccination, Planning for “Death and Dying” and Cancer Awareness as well as plans for new treatments and ways of accessing services virtually.   We have had outside speakers come to talk about services in the area. Updates from Carers and the work of the Local Area Coordinators and Social Prescribers are also regularly on the agenda.  If you are a Carer or even want to know if you are classified as a Carer then this is an opportunity to make contact with Carer support services.

In the past we have discussed the results of the Practice Survey.  Some discussion have also taken place regarding patients who do not attend (DNA) their appointments. Many appointments are wasted because of non-attendance – a telephone system is now in place to make cancelling an appointment easier.

We would dearly like to get more patients attending our PPG meetings, particularly the younger generation, who appear to be not so well represented.   If you know any students who may be studying in social care or wishing to enter into the medical profession perhaps you could pass the details of our PPG on to them, if they are a patient at Barwell or Hollycroft perhaps they would like to attend our meetings.

If you would like to attend any of our meetings please contact us for further information or just pass your name to the Receptionists.

We value our Patient's opinions, suggestions and comments.

Many thanks
