This week I’d like to talk about staff views on working at Ashford and St Peter’s. Last week we received the results of the 2019 National Staff Survey, completed between October-December 2019. The purpose of the survey is to collect staff views about working in their NHS organisation. The data is used to improve local working conditions and experience for teams, and ultimately to improve patient care.
The survey is completed annually so views can be monitored over time, allowing the NHS to compare the experiences of staff in similar organisations, and to compare the experiences of staff in a particular organisation with the national picture. I’m delighted that our response rate increased by 8% in 2019 and was completed by 2003 colleagues (350 more than 2018). It’s really important that staff share their views so we can get a better understanding of what is working well and where we can make improvements together.
