The NHS Staff Survey takes place annually across England to find out staff views of their experience at work and of NHS services.
The most recent national staff survey was undertaken in autumn 2020 and completed by 7,272 Trust staff.
How are we doing?
The results of the 2020 NHS Staff Survey show that 90% of our staff feel "satisfied with the standard of care provided by the organisation" and would recommend the Trust to their friends/relatives. This is well above the national average of 74% for combined acute and community hospital trusts in England.
We were above average in 7 out of 10 themes, equal to the national average in one theme and below average in two themes.
In particular, we scored well for:
- staff recommending us as a place to work – 81% compared to the national average of 67%
- staff engagement – we achieved the top score of 7.5 (on a scale of 0-10) compared to the national average of 7.0.
This time the survey also included questions on staff experiences during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Compared to the national scores for colleagues working in these areas, we:
- had more positive experiences than average in eight of the 10 themes
- reported the best or near-best results for quality of care, safety culture and staff engagement
- scored higher than the national average for health and wellbeing.
