Survey places Trust in top 20%

SConsultant and Nursetaff at Royal Surrey County Hospital would recommend the Trust as a place to work and receive treatment, a national survey has found.

The Trust was ranked in the top 20 per cent of NHS organisations nationally in a number of catergories, as part of the annual Staff Survey.

The study collects the experiences and opinions of NHS staff, including doctors, nurses, healthcare assistants, and non-clinical employees, on a range of matters such as job satisfaction, wellbeing and raising concerns.

Royal Surrey was placed in the top 20 per cent of NHS organistations in the country for employees willing to recommend it both as a place to work and receive treatment.

It also scored in the top category for a further 10 questions, which was an increase from last year.

They included:

  • Percentage of staff agreeing that their role made a difference to patients/service users
  • Percentage of staff able to contribute towards improvements at work
  • Percentage of staff believing the organisation provides equal opportunities for career progression/promotions
  • Percentage of staff satisfied with opportunities for flexible working patterns
  • Quality of appraisals

The survey was carried out between September and December 2015 across 297 NHS organisations.

A quarter of the permanent NHS workforce in England responded to the survey, with around 40 per cent of Royal Surrey employees taking part.

It is designed to help NHS organisations improve staff experience.

Nikki Hill, Associate Director of Human Resources, said: “Here at Royal Surrey County Hospital we strive to provide the best care anywhere and that would not be possible without our fantastic and dedicated staff.

“Our results are comparable with the wider findings of the study nationally and show improvement in a number of areas.

“I am particularly delighted that our employees would not only recommend Royal Surrey as a place to work, but also to receive treatment.

“The Staff Survey is a valuable tool to listen to our staff and we will be carefully analyzing the results to spot where improvements can be made and ensure Royal Surrey remains an excellent place to work.”
