Staff recommend Derby Hospitals as a place to work and receive treatment

Published 28/02/2013

A national survey just published says that staff working at Derby Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust would recommend receiving treatment to relatives and friends at its hospitals. 

The results, published today (28 February 2013) by the National NHS Staff Survey Co-ordination Centre, are from a survey carried out in autumn 2012 into opinions and attitudes of NHS staff across the country. The annual national survey is one of the largest surveys of its kind, and its purpose is to collect staff views about their experiences of working in the NHS. Information is fed back to Trusts to allow them to review and improve local working conditions for staff and ultimately to improve patient care.

Derby Hospitals has seen good results in a number of areas:

- 80% of staff feel satisfied with the quality of work and patient care they are able to deliver 

- 89% of staff agreed that their role makes a difference to patients

- 90% of staff believe the Trust provides equal opportunities for career progression or promotion

- 80% of staff reported that they received job relevant training, learning or development

Karen Martin, director of workforce management, said:Overall the results of this year's survey are encouraging and we are delighted that staff would recommend Derby Hospitals as a place to receive treatment and work. We recognise that there are still some areas we need to improve on and we will be focussing on these over the next few months.”
