Our 2017 #conversations initiative ran from 25th to the 29th of September. We encouraged staff, patients and parents to talk to us about our services.

Thankyou Marta

We think continuing communication is important and part of this process is including everyone in the discussions that affect them. The 2017 #conversations week encouraged us to spend the time having conversations, big and small, and with different people who are invested in our shared vision. This all contributes to how we want our services to develop and how we can all work together to achieve this.

Thank You Marius

We focused on discharge and how we can work to make it better. In 2016 we designed our Partnership Charter and this was launched during #conversations in 2017. We also gave everyone the chance to say a Big Thank You to anyone who made a real difference to their hospital visit.

Thank You Parent

The week was 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.
