Our People Plan

Whatever our role, wherever we work – every single one of our colleagues at Leeds and York Partnership NHS Foundation Trust plays an outstanding role in delivering high-quality care to our service users and their families.

Our People Plan sets out our commitment to all our colleagues – to be the best they can be at work, so we are ready to face whatever the challenges that lie ahead. Rightly so, it has been developed by listening to our people, as well as feedback from our regular staff surveys, and at its heart is compassion and admiration for colleagues who have achieved something remarkable and of whom, as well as saying thank you, we continue to ask for more.

Describing our ambition is one thing; delivering is another. So this three-year strategic plan identifies what we plan to do as part of the four NHS People Plan ambitions, which we will focus on for the next three years to continue to engage, retain and recruit colleagues. Our commitment is to continue to listen and evolve our People Plan in response to any changing context.
