Leicestershire County Council’s Joint Carers Strategy consultation was launched on 6 June and is open until midnight on 31 July 2022. To take part in the consultation visit www.leicestershire.gov.uk/carers-strategy where you will find the draft strategy and online questionnaire.

Leicestershire County Council’s Adult Social Care and Health launched their new Care Technology (CT) Service for local residents on 25 April.
Care Technology (sometimes referred to as ‘telecare’) is monitoring and alert equipment that can be tailored to help people remain safe and independent in their homes and communities. This equipment can also provide residents, their carers, family and friends with the reassurance that help is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
The new CT Service will be free for all adults living in Leicestershire who meet the council’s eligibility criteria. To find out more visit www.leicestershire.gov.uk/care-technology
Phase 2 of the pilot service, provided by DHU to include weekend provision is now live and the service will be available from 8am – 8pm seven days a week until the end of May 2022 when the pilot finishes.
This service has been introduced to eliminate the difference in service provision between Leicester city, and Leicestershire and Rutland, reduce health inequality and improve patient health and wellbeing.
Referrals can be made by all Health and Social Care professionals and will be triaged by DHU. The aim is to provide a response at the person’s place of residence to assess, treat, discharge and make an onward referral for support as appropriate within 2 hours.
