82 per cent of staff at Guy’s and St Thomas’ would recommend the hospitals to their friends and relatives as a place to receive treatment, according to a recent survey carried out among staff at the Trust in 2012.
This is much higher than the national average of 60 per cent of NHS staff in acute trusts who agree with the statement "If a friend or relative needed treatment, I would be happy with the standard of care provided by this organisation".
The survey also shows that staff satisfaction continues to improve, with the Trust receiving one of the highest scores nationally for staff recommending the Trust as a place to work.
Chief Nurse and Director of Patient Experience, Eileen Sills, said: “These are fantastic results, and it’s encouraging to see that we have improved in some areas since last year.
“There are of course always areas we would like to improve in, including improving the work-life balance of staff as there has been an increase in staff reporting that they are working extra hours.”
