National Staff Survey 2019

Our annual National Staff Survey opens on Monday 7 October, and runs for seven weeks.

The Staff Survey is sent to all members of Team NUH (excluding those who joined after 1 September this year). The Survey link is emailed to the email address held in an individual's Electronic Staff Record.

Why do we carry out a Staff Survey?

Our People are our key priority.

Evidence shows a positive correlation between staff retention and engagement, and patient outcomes. Understanding the factors which influence how people feel about being a part of Team NUH is hugely important in helping determine what we're doing well, and where positive changes are needed.

We want to retain skilled individuals, and help them to develop in their role to achieve their career aspirations. This is at the core of our vision as a Trust.

The National Staff Survey is mandated by NHS England, and benchmarks us against other Trusts in England to show us how we're performing against a range metrics.

What information does the Survey collect?

The Survey collects feedback against ten themes. These are:

  1. Equality, diversity and inclusion
  2. Health and wellbeing
  3. Immediate managers
  4. Morale
  5. Quality of appraisals
  6. Quality of care
  7. Safe environment – bullying and harassment
  8. Safe environment – violence
  9. Safety culture
  10. Staff engagement

All feedback gathered through the Staff Survey is completely anonymous.
