The results of the NHS Staff Survey (taken in 2017) were published on Tuesday 6 March 2018.
We’re proud to be able to celebrate our success in harnessing an engaged workforce following the latest National NHS Staff Survey results. SSSFT continues to be one of the top performing Mental Health and Learning Disability Trusts in the country, with above average scores on 24 out of the 32 key findings, and below average in none. This is a great achievement for the Trust given the mounting workforce pressures on the NHS in general.
The 2017 results have shown areas where we can celebrate good practice: such as how our senior managers involve staff in important decisions, act on feedback and also how our values are discussed as part of a meaningful appraisal. We are again, for the second year running, above average in all key areas of engagement, staff recommending the Trust as a place to work or receive treatment, staff motivation at work, and staff ability to contribute towards improvements at work.
Research evidence has shown a link that better staff experiences (particularly in relation to wellbeing, job design and the organisation generally) are linked to lower absenteeism and greater patient satisfaction. The Trust’s latest staff survey results continue to support this evidence, highlighting the Trust’s journey to become outstanding in all areas of service delivery, engagement and job satisfaction.
