Asking What Matters to You (WMTY) is a key person-centred approach for providing personalised care. Person-centred approaches are a key part of our ACP Workforce Strategy and are defined as “enabling the people of Sheffield to live a life they value, and allow people and communities to have greater control over what matters to them”.
This week, on Wednesday 9th June, it was national WMTY Day 2021 that aims to encourage and support meaningful conversations between people who provide health and social care services and the people, families, carers who receive health and social care. You can find more information on the day here.
Over the last week we’ve been asking through our social media #WMTYSheffield. We’ve been sharing resources that can help and encourage this question to be part of everyday practice to enable people to live a live they value.

Lauren Fitzgerald from Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust developed and distributed a newsletter on the day with colleagues looking at what they’ve achieved over the last year, hearing the stories from their WMTY champions and shared more information about how they can continue to support their staff with WMTY.
