We believe that service user and staff experience will also be exceptional where great teamwork exists.

We have a well-established in-house Learning and Organisational Development Team which provides a range of learning and organisational development programmes for staff at all levels across our Trust. The Learning and OD Team support teams to develop and improve their performance. We have skilled organisational development professionals who can partner with teams and their leaders to support their development. The team offers team development diagnostic tools to support this work.

We also take a leading role in wider staff engagement. We help the organisation listen to and act on feedback from staff. We do this in a number of ways including through the yearly staff survey, the quarterly staff friends and family test and a number of other forums and opportunities which we call Your Voice Counts. See our latest People Plan.>
