NHS Staff Survey results

We are pleased to be able to share the results from the 2015 NHS Staff Survey. Every year our staff are asked to take part in a national survey so we can get their views on what is it like to work in the Trust.

Our results this year are on the whole very positive, with improvements in many areas and we are now above the national average in 29 of the 32 national indicators.

Some areas where we scored particularly well include staff feeling able to their job to a standard they are personally pleased with, staff feeling that their role makes a difference to patients and staff feeling that managers support them to access to training, learning or development.

However, there are some areas for improvement. These include communication between senior management and staff, staff feeling involved in important decisions and staff feeling that the organisation treats staff involved in incidents fairly.

This year we added some extra questions to the survey intended to give us feedback on how engaged staff are feeling, which again the results on the whole were positive.

Over the next couple of weeks we will be looking at the results in more detail and identifying ways in which we can maintain positive results and make further improvements where needed.
