Director of Human Resources and Organisational Development Michael Pantlin said:"2009 was a busy year for the Royal Surrey, which culminated in the granting of Foundation Trust status in December. I am pleased that, despite the added pressure and work involved in achieving this accolade and looking after our patients, our staff are some of the most motivated in the country and are happy to recommend the Trust as a place to work and receive treatment.
“Over the past two years, we have invested in more nurses and better training, but there are still areas where there is room for improvement. Giving our staff the space and opportunity to properly review performance is one of the challenges our managers must overcome. Teams across the organisation will be looking at the results and ensuring that action is taken to deliver an improved working environment and enhanced patient experience.”
