Leicestershire County Council is responsible for a range of public services across the county. Health and Social care teams are working together to provide more joined up care in the community, particularly for frail older people, those with long term conditions and other vulnerable groups, including carers.

LLR Training Hub
The Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland Training Hub is emerging as an essential vehicle of primary care workforce transformation, working closely with stakeholders across LLR. With an ability to engage multiple general practice organisations and provide consistent education, development and workforce planning support, the hub offers opportunities for primary care colleagues to develop and enhance skills whilst also supporting new clinical staff through fellowships, preceptorships, peer and multi-professional learning groups.

LLR Clinical Commissioning Groups
All three Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs), NHS Leicester City, NHS West Leicestershire and East Leicestershire and Rutland (LLR) have responsibility for commissioning the majority of health services for the local population. Clinical Commissioning Groups do not provide health services. Instead they are responsible for planning and commissioning health care services for their local area with resources delegated to them by NHS England. They are accountable to NHS England, and Parliament, for how they use these resources and the results they achieve. Commissioning is about getting the best possible health outcomes for the local population. This involves assessing local needs, deciding priorities and strategies, and then buying services on behalf of the population from providers such as hospitals, community health providers and GPs among others.  CCGs must constantly respond and adapt to changing local circumstances. They are responsible for the health of the entire population, and measured by how much they improve outcomes for patients.

Leicester City Council
The City Council serves the people, communities and businesses of Leicester, the biggest city in the East Midlands. It is a unitary authority, which means it take responsibility for many of the major decisions that affect people’s lives. This includes decisions around schools, roads and setting council tax.
