2019 NHS Staff Survey coming soon

This year you can take part in the national staff survey between Thursday 3 October and Friday 29 November 2019.

This is your chance to have your say about your experience of working here at the CCG… the good, the bad and the ugly!

We are facing many challenges and changes over the coming months, so it’s important you tell us how you feel. Your feedback will help inform and influence how we move forward together.

Here’s some examples of things we’ve done, or are due to put in place, since last year’s survey:

  • Set up a Staff Partnership Group made up of representatives from departments across the CCG who meet on a monthly basis
  • Introduced a Freedom to Speak Up Champion, David Wallace, within the CCG and delivered training to staff on Stamping Out Bullying
  • Launched a new health and wellbeing campaign (called the 12 months of healthiness) for staff. It focuses on the benefits of staying healthy physically and mentally and the positive impact it can have in the workplace
  • Held ‘Let’s talk flexible working’ workshops for managers. These sessions promoted the benefits of flexible working within the CCG
  • Adopted a Time to Change Pledge. The pledge is about changing attitudes and raising awareness of mental health in the workplace
  • Staff awards and recognition. We will be setting up a working group to come up with suggestions for a recognition scheme/awards for staff.

Picker, an independent research charity, is managing the survey. Look out for your email from them next Thursday. It will contain a link to the survey for you to complete. All survey responses are confidential.

If you have any concerns or queries, please contact Jeneva Allison.

Talking of surveys, like buses you wait ages for one and then two come along at once…

Safeguarding Adult Staff Survey 2019

Do you have contact with adults with care and support needs?

If so, the Southend, Essex and Thurrock Safeguarding Adult Boards are asking you to complete a survey. This is so they can establish the strengths and any gaps within adult safeguarding.

They can then help staff to feel more confident and knowledgeable when dealing with adult safeguarding issues.

The survey will allow the boards to comply with the Care Act (2014). It will help them have a clear, agreed understanding of the roles, responsibilities and accountability of its member agencies.

The survey is open until Friday 25 October and shouldn’t take more than 10 minutes to complete. All responses will be anonymous.

For more information, please contact Paula Ward, Essex Safeguarding Adult Board on 03330 131022.
