Better Care Together (BCT) is a programme of work which will help to transform the health and social care system in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland (LLR). It works with partners to shape the Sustainability and Transformation Plan (STP) for Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland which builds on this work. The Patient and Public Involvement (PPI) Group has an important role working with the BCT programme and its partners to shape these services, acting as the public and patient voice on plans. The group meets on a monthly basis where they are able discuss the plans and share any other relevant information they have.
All applicants are expected to be able to work effectively and collaboratively with senior multi stakeholder colleagues, as well as be able to understand and evaluate a range of information and evidence. As part of the PPI role, members must also display sound judgement and an ability to be objective, have an awareness of, and commitment to, equality and diversity, and understand the need for confidentiality.
As part of the STP 17 workstreams have been created to look into different areas of the STP and work on changes. It has been agreed that each of these workstreams should have a representative of the PPI as a member. Many of these roles have been allocated but there are a number of gaps, namely in: Resilient Primary Care; Prevention; Children’s, Maternity and Neonates and IM&T. Each workstream has a separate meeting that the PPI representative should attend.
