The three CCG’s public consultation on proposals to invest in and improve adult mental health services


The three NHS clinical commissioning groups covering Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland are carrying out a public consultation into proposals to invest in and improve adult mental health services for people when their need is urgent or they need planned care and treatment.

Mental and emotional health problems represent the largest single cause of disability in the UK.  One in four adults experiences at least one mental health problem in any given year. 

We would like to give as many people in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland the opportunity to share their views, on what is a very important topic right now. 

The consultation, which runs until 15 August 2021, concerns the services delivered by Leicestershire Partnership NHS Trust, alongside some key partners.

The Step up to Great proposals are set to deliver a number of improvements that will better support adults and older people who need mental and emotional support urgently and for community mental health care and treatment planned in advance.

The proposals would provide joined-up and easier access, for people and their families, to mental health care and provide more mental health care locally, including in people’s homes, meeting the needs of our communities. This will leave inpatient facilities to care for the most unwell people. They will also reduce long waits and help people to get the right care, first time, providing a seamless experience with no unnecessary delays or need to continually repeat their story.

The proposals will help improve the health and wellbeing of people help them to live the best life they can.

We would encourage you to visit the website www.greatmentalhealthllr.nhs.uk to view the full consultation document and have your say via the consultation questionnaire.
