Staff survey reminder – final chance to make a difference this year

The 2021 survey closes on Friday 26 November…

The end of this year’s NHS staff survey is approaching fast and time is running out to take part.

So far more than 70 per cent of you have responded but if you have not yet had your say, you only have until this Friday (26 November) to take part and your contribution is vital.

With continued uncertainty and pressures on how we live and work – receiving feedback on your experiences in the workplace remains more important than ever.

The NHS annual staff survey, which began in 2003, takes into account the views of thousands of staff working within the NHS and to ensure you all have the best experience possible.

It does, and has, made a huge difference – which busts the myth that it does not matter whether you complete the survey or not.

Did you also know:

  • your responses are completely anonymous and the results only reported to organisations in summary form in a way which makes it impossible to identify anyone
  • it does not take very long to complete – at around 15 minutes you could probably do it whilst enjoying a tea break and a biscuit
  • with around 600,000 colleagues across the NHS taking part, this is the largest survey of its kind in the world – which is why it takes a while to check the data and publish it.

Having your say has already influenced a number of changes in past years, including the introduction of a number of wellbeing initiatives such as regular mindfulness sessions along with Freedom to Speak Up Champions and Mental Health First Aiders.
