Shaping the future of our Trust

Here at Leeds and York Partnership NHS Foundation Trust (LYPFT), our Communications Team is conducting work on behalf of the Chief Executive and her team to shape the future of the Trust.

A group of people working together in a roomWe want to be known as the NHS provider of choice with the best expertise to deliver outstanding services.

We surveyed hundreds of people in November last year which gave us some really useful high-level feedback on what people think about us and about their experience of working with us. Thank you if you completed one of these surveys.

You can find the results in this document.

We received some feedback asking why this work is a priority right now. We believe having a strong brand identity is important to help us communicate why the Trust is a great place to work, a great place to receive care, and a great partner to lead innovation in the health and care system.

We’re now looking to deepen our understanding with some face-to-face engagement sessions taking place on 21 March 2023. We’ve been working with our brand development partners at Think Outside the Box to translate the survey findings into various elements that will build the new LYPFT brand, including statements about the Trust’s future vision and purpose.

If you’re interested in attending a brand engagement session to share your opinions on the best way to communicate our emerging brand, please get in touch.
