#conversations is back! From 25th to 29th September we are encouraging staff, patients and parents to talk to us about our services.


Communication matters, and it's important that everyone is included in discussions which affect them.  #conversations encourages us to spend the week having conversations, big and small, in different ways and with different people to explore our shared vision of how we want our services to develop and how we can work together to achieve this.

This year we are thinking about discharge and how we can work together to make it better, launching our Partnership Charter which we designed in last year's event and giving everyone the chance to say a Big Thank You to anyone who has made a real difference to their day.

Activities are taking place in main reception, outpatients areas and across our wards and departments.  Timetables will be available on main reception so look out for them! We'll also be posting on the hospital Facebook page so do join up if you're not already a member.

The event is once again kindly supported by Above and Beyond.




In its first year #Conversations ran from 14th to 23rd September and at the heart of the campaign was an aspiration to change current thinking and embed a new way of working in partnership.


47 staff and 40 volunteers gave their time to participate in 57 separate activities all designed to engage children, young people, families and staff in different ways including ward roadshows, hospital based well being sessions, dolls dress up sessions in play areas, reception events, job shadowing, and a fete in the hospital garden. The event was launched by a music video starring patients and staff, which reached 50,000 families on Facebook.
