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.

Most stays are planned and allow for family carers to have a break from caring for their family member. At times we can provide emergency care and care at short notice to service users known to our services. Physical needs can be met including enteral feeding, moving and handling, personal care, tracheostomy care or support to reduce their challenging behaviour and a variety of other procedures.
Adults with a diagnosis of a learning disability. Patients are required to have 50% or more health care funding, should have identified health care needs and/or other services have been tried and have been unsuccessful.
