Event description

Description

Here's a great example of staff leading the way to influence a change.

One area we fell down on in last year's national NHS staff survey was the number of staff who felt 'communication with senior management and staff is good'. It was much lower than the national average. And through the Listening into Action (LiA) CrowdFixing events we've just held, staff also told Chief Executive, Simon Morritt (pictured having his flu jab last month) that they didn't feel a connection with the Trust's Executive Director Team, so communication from the Board often didn't reach them until 'things had happened'. Staff said that they don't feel involved in decisions and have the impression they can't share their views, or that their ideas aren't listened to or taken seriously - all frustrations that LiA is designed to change!

To solve this particular 'bug bear' though, Simon told CrowdFixing attendees that he would make sure that the Executive Team get together with staff four times a year in an open and informal way - to share news, discuss plans and priorities and seek out views. It would be an opportunity for staff across the hospital to come along and ask the team questions.

We've now got dates in the diary - so you can plan ahead. All the sessions will take place 12noon-1.00pm in the Old Lecture Theatre:

The Old Lecture Theatre seats about 150 people and we'll be providing hot drinks - so having an idea of numbers will be helpful. We'll also be in touch with everyone in advance to find out if there's anything specific you want to ask about - to make sure the team can respond effectively to any key issues you're concerned about. Otherwise it's an open forum on the day.

Book now - and why not agree who'll represent your ward, department or service so they can feedback to everyone else after the event?
