We were looking for patients to help develop our next annual report on engagement activities.
We know that understanding the needs and preferences of local people and acting on their feedback is essential if we are to provide high quality, safe and compassionate services in Leeds.
Through April 2017 to March 2018, we sought patient and public views about a range of NHS services in Leeds. This document provides an overview of the engagement activities that have taken place over the past year and includes a summary of what people told us and what we did in response to hearing those views.
We have produced this document because we feel it is important to showcase how we have engaged with our population during the course of the year. It gives us the chance to show our responsiveness and accountability to our patients.
We worked together with patients and volunteers to design the ‘Involving you’ report. We held a workshop in March 2018. It was attended by patients and volunteers who have helped us to develop an attractive, engaging, and accessible document. In previous years this document was referred to as the ‘Statement of Involvement’. Our work with patients suggested that this title is not easily understood by the wider public.
If you want to know more about our patient work to develop this document you can find a report that outlines the activities and feedback from the day below.
