NHS staff survey puts Derby Teaching Hospitals in top 20% nationally

Published 06/03/2018

A survey of NHS staff, published today, finds that 84% 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: “These results show that our staff continue to feel that they make a difference to the patients we care for and I’d like to thank them for their continued hard work and dedication. It’s particularly pleasing as this is the third year running that we’ve achieved these top 20% scores for staff recommending our hospitals as a place to work and receive treatment.”

Almost 3,500 Derby staff took part in the national survey, one of the largest of its kind, giving their views about their experiences of working in the NHS. 

The Derby Teaching Hospitals’ scores are also above the national average for several other important measures of staff experience, including staff feeling satisfied with the quality of work and care they are able to deliver and feeling motivated.

Dr Pease added: “Over the next few months we will be working with our staff to look in depth at the opportunities to improve to make us any even better place to work.”

Areas for improvement include looking at how the Trust can ensure effective team working.
