East Cheshire NHS Trust has performed well the latest NHS Staff Survey, with employees of the trust reporting feeling more engaged and motivated – and more likely to recommend the trust as a place to work or receive treatment.
Staff at the trust, which runs Macclesfield, Congleton and Knutsford hospitals, also reported improvements in support and communication from managers, along with better team working.
All permanent staff at the trust were asked to complete an anonymous questionnaire during October and November 2016 as part of the independent national survey.
The survey asked for views about working for East Cheshire NHS Trust, with the aim of gathering information that will help to improve the working lives of staff, and so provide better care for patients.
Rachael Charlton, the trust’s Director of human resources, said: “We are very pleased with the results of this survey and believe it provides a strong endorsement of our organisation as a place to work.
“As a trust known for its very friendly, ‘family’ atmosphere, we have always performed strongly in some areas of the NHS Staff Survey but we have worked hard to improve others.
“Overall, I think this independently-verified survey shows that we are a great organisation to work for which provides excellent career opportunities and sincerely cares about its employees.”
Other key findings from the survey include an increase in the perceived recognition and value of staff by managers and the organisation, and increased staff satisfaction with level of responsibility and involvement, along with support from immediate managers.
