NHS staff survey puts Derby in top 20% nationally

NHS staff survey puts Derby in top 20% nationally

Published 07/03/2017

A survey of NHS staff, published today, finds that 83% of staff at Derby Teaching Hospitals would be happy to recommend their hospitals if a friend or relative needed treatment. 

Derby Teaching Hospitals is in the top 20% of trusts nationally for staff who would recommend their organisation as a place to work or receive treatment, and for the number of staff who say they feel engaged at work.  

Dr Neil Pease, Director of Workforce, said: “This is great news for the Trust and for our staff, who deserve so much praise for their loyalty and hard work to provide the best care for our patients. We have a huge number of dedicated, caring staff here in Derby, who are devoted to working for our patients in spite of the enormous challenges facing the NHS nationally.”

More than 2,500 Derby staff took part in the national survey, which is one of the largest of its kind, collecting views about their experiences of working in the NHS. 

The Derby scores are also above the national average for the quality of staff training and for staff feeling able to contribute to improvements. Compared to last year, staff say they feel more valued and recognised by the Trust and they experience better support from their line managers.

Dr Pease added: “We will be looking in depth at these scores and what they tell us, reviewing key areas and ensuring we take any opportunities to continue to improve and make Derby Teaching Hospitals an even better place to work."

Areas for improvement include using patient feedback more effectively.
