YourBrief is a monthly strategic communication containing high-level updates cascadedYour brief.jpg from the executives through managers to teams.

Content is grouped under our four strategic themes – Our services, Our people, Our resources and Our future.

YourBrief aims to ensure everyone across the Trust receives consistent updates and messages each month through their established face-to-face or virtual team meetings.

The initial presentation of YourBrief takes place at a virtual monthly half-hour session led by Chief Executive Professor Joe Rafferty CBE or a member of the Executive Leadership Team.

All leaders at band 8a and above are invited to the session, which is run on Teams during the first week of each month (day and time will change to remain inclusive).

Following the initial YourBrief session, the Powerpoint presentation will be emailed to all 8as and above for onward cascade to teams. Wherever possible, this should be during existing face-to-face or virtual meetings to allow for questions and discussion – ideally, within two weeks of receiving the email.

Managers are encouraged to add value by presenting in the context of their own service or function to make the content meaningful to their team.

There is space at the end of the presentation for managers to add in any relevant local information.

Managers should confirm YourBrief has been delivered using this simple form.
