Staff survey results

Message from Andrew and Rob

We have now received the results of the most recent NHS national staff survey which was carried out towards the end of 2018.  Firstly thanks to all of you who took part with over 80% of you completing it. We greatly appreciate you taking the time out of what we know are very busy days to let us know your thoughts.

We are passing on some of the key themes of the results and we will talk more about this at the next staff briefing on 13 March. You can also see the results in full for the CCG and all NHS organisations on the dedicated NHS England website.

Highlights for us include:

  • 81% of staff took part (118 people, and up from 78% last year)
  • 2/3 of you would recommend the CCG as a place to work
  • 85% of you feel supported by your line manager

An area where we did well and which we are delighted to read, was on staff engagement. Under this theme, you reported increased levels of enthusiasm about your work and that more of you are enjoying your job. People also reported feeling able to make suggestions and we saw a significant increase in the numbers of people who feel that the CCG involves them in important decisions.

However, there are still improvements that can be made particularly around:

  • Health and wellbeing
  • Bullying
  • Flexible working

Although there is some positive change in these areas we still need to do more.  So, to address these issues:

  • The board has signed the pledge to Stamp Out Bullying and staff have all been receiving anti-bullying training
  • A new flexible working policy has been agreed by the Exec Team
  • We have signed up to the Time to Change mental health pledge – more information on that soon
  • A staff partnership group is being established (please let the Comms team know if you would like to be a part of this) and the first meeting will be held very soon.

Thank you to everyone who took part and look out on HUE for news of next steps and how you can get involved so we can continue to improve and make the CCG a great place to work and develop your career.
