HMA is thrilled to have recently won a competitive tender process to reimagine the online offering for Leeds and York Partnership NHS Foundation Trust (LYPFT) with the delivery of a new website. LYPFT provides specialist mental health and learning disability services to the people of Leeds and across the Yorkshire and Humber region.

Working in partnership with local communities, the Trust’s core purpose is to improve the mental health and wellbeing of the people who use its services.

The HMA team is currently working with LYPFT and a wide range of stakeholders to co-create a bespoke digital experience for service users, carers and healthcare professionals.

LYPFT’s Digital Communications Project Manager, Steven Hunter, said:

“When I first got to grips with our current website it was clear that, whilst there was a lot of work to do, we could make some vast improvements both for users of the website and the content editors.

“I’ve met with a huge number of people across the Trust and the messages have been consistent – we need to get the basics right and make sure the site serves the needs of those who use it.

“It’s great to be working with a local company like HMA who have a track record of delivery fantastic value for money web projects. We’re looking forward to launching the new site later this year.”

HMA’s Client Services Director, Emma Casimir said “We’re delighted to be working with LYPFT on this project and we are looking forward to delivering a creative and intuitive web service. The fact that LYPFT are embracing the principles of the co-creation process we proposed means that both stakeholders and service users will be involved from the start of the project which we have no doubt will contribute to its success – after all, we’re designing the site for them.”

The first service user and stakeholder workshops have already taken place and after leaving inspired, the HMA team is hard at work developing concepts for delivery.  We look forward to sharing the end result later this year
