Culture - What's Important

Make Your Voice Count

Thank you to everyone who took the time to contribute to the first and second conversations, whether it was sharing your views, supporting others or challenging the norm. We had such a fantastic response to both conversations. 

As you know after the first conversation we’ve been able to come up with six key themes based on the feedback you provided.  The second conversation has given us the opportunity to check in with you to make sure that we’ve heard you correctly and that your views have been interpreted fairly and that we’re not missing anything that’s important to you. We know that part of having a good culture is feeling listened to.

The online conversations are now closed whilst we analyse all your feedback and share this with the Culture Collaborative before we move onto face to face sessions in February/March 2020.

What is Your Voice Counts?

Leeds and York Partnership NHS Foundation Trust is committed to bringing the experience and ideas of staff, service users, members and partners to the heart of decision making. “Your Voice Counts” is our way of making this happen.

This website is our digital channel for Your Voice Counts, it works alongside our face-to-face workshops, focus groups and other communications and listening events to give our communities a voice.

This accompanying video helps tell the story of how this approach empowered our staff and stakeholders to make their voice count in our recent strategy refresh project.



What is a Your Voice Counts Online Conversation?

Like all great meetings, a Your Voice Counts online conversation brings people together to build insight, agree plans and inspire action.

Unlike a physical meeting, our online conversations provide us with a virtual room that is not constrained by size, timing or location. It means more people can have their say at a time that suits them from wherever they are whilst the conversation is live.

Each online conversation poses one or more powerful questions to our staff, service users, carers, members and partners and invites those who are interested to share their ideas, review the ideas of others and use voting and commenting to bring the best ideas to the top.

All contributions to our online conversations are anonymised, this ensures ideas are judged on their merit, not their author. It means we can have truly open, honest and accountable debate.
