Reduced services due to Covid-19
Together with the rest of the NHS, Leicestershire Partnership NHS Trust is preparing for the unprecedented demands of the coronavirus (Covid-19) outbreak. During this time, your care may change a little, for example it may be delivered in a different way, or may have to be postponed for a while. We will try to explain why we have to take these steps below.
As a result of the outbreak, we are prioritising the care we normally provide, and some services will be restricted or closed. We will be writing to patients who are affected. If you were expecting to attend one of our clinics in the next few days and have not received a letter, please phone the number provided on your original appointment letter to confirm whether you should still attend.

This service is for adults registered with a GP in Leicester, Leicestershire or Rutland who require rehabilitation to support return of function and wellbeing to achieve the best health outcome.
The Community Integrated Neurology and Stroke Service is for adults over 18 who have a Leicester, Leicestershire or Rutland GP and have a confirmed neurological/stroke diagnosis or are under investigation by a Neurologist or Stroke Physician. Patients must have a current rehabilitation need directly attributed to their neurological condition and require specialist neurological intervention/rehabilitation.
If you require input from this service you should speak to your GP or a health or social care professional involved in your care who can make the referral. Once the team receive the referral it will be reviewed by a clinician and allocated to the most appropriate waiting list. You will then receive a letter to confirm your referral has been accepted and that you are awaiting an assessment from the team.
If you have previously received input from CINSS and your needs have changed as a result of your neurological diagnosis, please call 0116 295 3309 to self-refer yourself to the team.
Who to contact if you need an interpreter or information about disabled access
Please contact the service when you receive your letter to advise us that you need an intepreter – one can then be arranged to attend your appointment.
