A case study from Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland

20 March 2024
1 CPD hour

This case study describes Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland (LLR) CCGs’ model for primary care funding, developed in 2020/21, to ensure better alignment of primary care funding with population need. This has enabled the CCGs and their successor integrated care board to drive up health equity and reduce health inequalities.

Not all organisations will have the resources available to innovate at the scale of LLR CCGs, but the approach provides insight for organisations and systems aiming to address health inequalities through a simplified payment mechanism that can be tailored as appropriate.
