How do I find what I need to know?

The Trust publishes all of its policies on this website. The list of policies below are links which will open each document.

Within each policy, the index page is a set of hyperlinks that take you directly to the section you require. You can click into any policy and right click anywhere in the document to open “find”. Type in the word you want to look for and the search tool will take you to every place in the policy in which that word is mentioned.

The policies contain links. These will take staff to the forms, leaflets and posters that they may need to deliver effective patient care.

All references to the duties and responsibilities of the Trust Secretary shall, with effect from 1 August 2022, transfer to those of the Director of Corporate Governance. For the avoidance of doubt, that shall include duties set out in but not limited to, the Trust’s Constitution, corporate documents, strategies, policies, procedures, plans, minutes, action trackers, forms, leaflets, posters, electronic workflows, the Trust website and on Sharon (the Trust’s intranet).  

As each of these documents and/or electronic processes becomes due for review, the title shall be changed. This is until such time any and all duties referring to the Trust Secretary shall be the responsibility of the Director of Corporate Governance. The Board further authorises that, where the only amendment needed to a document or webpage is a change in this title, it shall be carried out without the need for any further approvals via the responsible Council, Board, Committee or body of the Trust.

We are aware that the documents on this page may not be accessible for all. We will be creating accessible versions of the documents as they are reviewed however in the meantime, if you need a document we’ve published in a different format, please email lpft.communications@nhs.net or call 01522 309194
