South Staffordshire and Shropshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust has been shortlisted in the Staff Engagement category of the prestigious national Health Service Journal Awards.

The Trust has achieved significant improvements in how staff feel about working for the organisation, and this in turn has positively affected patient care, resulting in the Trust being rated “good” by the Care Quality Commission as well as other external recognition.

The evidence from more than two decades of study is that a workforce that feels valued and has an element of control over its future is healthier and more productive. High levels of staff engagement result in improved levels of patient satisfaction, so staff wellbeing is essential to patient wellbeing.

Service users, carers and staff at South Staffordshire and Shropshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust will be in party mood on Wednesday 13 September when the Trust holds its annual Trust Festival, followed by the Annual Members’ Meeting.

The Arts for Health team from South Staffordshire and Shropshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust has been invited to provide a stimulating and vibrant display at this year’s Health Expo event in Manchester on 11-12 September.
