Transforming Mental Health and Learning Disabilities Services


The NHS Leicestershire Partnership Trust is working through a five year plan to:

  • Develop all mental health and learning disabilities services, so they give excellent, high quality and joined up care.
  • Make using mental health and learning disabilities services a better experience for everyone.
  • Reorganise working time, to make it possible for service users to have more time with clinicians.
  • Help mental health and learning disabilities services to cope with increasing demand and capacity issues.

The plan has been developed by NHS staff, patients and services that support mental health and learning disabilities across Rutland, Leicester and Leicestershire.

May 2019 Update

Thank you to everyone who has contributed many hours into design workshops over the last year. The transformation programme has brought together service users, carers, staff and stakeholders to design improvements to our mental health and learning disabilities services.

The outputs of all of this co-design work has now been summarised in this Key Design Features Document.

The key design features describe what LPT’s transformed mental health and learning disabilities services will deliver moving forward.

We are now approaching the end of stage 3 of a total 5 stages of the transformation programme and are currently working with LPT staff to co-design a workforce model and structure to enable us to best deliver the key design features. This includes extensive data and workforce analysis.

By the end of May a whole draft workforce model will have been developed. There will then be a period of thorough testing, as well as continued engagement, to assess the draft model's ability to meet expected demand, on affordability and viability. Amendments may need to be made depending on the outcomes of these tests. Afterwards, phased implementation will commence by the end of the year until 2022. More to come on this soon.
