Rutland residents response to the Leicester, Leicestershire & Rutland draft Sustainability and Transformation PlanDownload (PDF 937KB)
Summary of report content
The STP for Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland includes cuts of £400 million. It claims it can do this and improve the quality of services by not admitting people into hospital but instead providing care locally in the community and in their homes. Rutland people told Healthwatch Rutland that the plan, as it stands now, does not work for them. Rutland residents support the principle of bringing care closer to home and understand the need to save money, but have concerns that under the current plan services crucial to the Rutland population would be dismantled with no viable alternatives proposed. They also believe that the impact of the cuts falls disproportionately on Rutland. This report asks the CCGs to formally respond. This report contains the challenges, the offer, the impact of the draft STP plan upon Rutland and the recommendations from Rutland people to improve the STP.
