Valuable feedback from the national staff survey

We’ve received valuable feedback from the national staff survey, scoring the national average or above in all but one area.

More than 2,018 (53%) of our staff completed the NHS people promise survey and we maintained the good scores in:

  • recognised and rewarded
  • safe and healthy
  • always learning
  • working flexibly
  • compassionate and inclusive
  • voice that counts
  • staff engagement
  • morale

Out of the nine categories in the survey the trust scores higher than the national average in seven and the same as the national average in one of the categories. In the one category where we are lower than the national average, this is by 0.01.

The survey asked staff a range of questions about the staff member’s job, team, the organisation, about managers, health and safety and personal development.

Some scores were slightly lower than the previous year, but Kathryn Lavery, Chair of RDaSH, said “I know that the trust leadership is committed to improving on those areas highlighted, not only to improve our staff survey results but importantly to provide a better working environment and experience for all our staff”.

Nicola McIntosh, Director for people and organisational development, said: “I want to thank our colleagues for everything that they do at RDaSH. We will use these scores and the anonymous free text comments supplied to bring about changes in the organisation to benefit our colleagues and the people who use our services.”
