Staff recommend NNUH as place to work and receive treatment
Members of staff at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (NNUH) have recommended their hospitals as a place to work or receive treatment in a national survey.
The 2013 National NHS Staff Survey compared staff feedback from acute trusts.
The score for the question asking staff if they would recommend their hospitals as a place to work or receive treatment has risen for the third year running, with the 2013 rating 3.74 out of 5, compared to the national average for NHS acute trusts of 3.68 out of 5.
In addition, the survey found that staff rated NNUH above average for:
The percentage of staff able to contribute towards improvements at work
The percentage of staff receiving job-relevant training, learning or development in the last 12 months
The percentage of staff who believe the Trust provides equal opportunities for career progression or promotion
66% of staff invited to take part in the 2013 survey responded.
Chief Executive, Anna Dugdale, said: It is important that we know how our staff feel and it makes me really proud of our teams who make NNUH a great place to work. It is particularly encouraging that our staff also recommend our hospitals as a place to receive treatment.
She added: “Our vision is to provide every patient with the care we want for those we love the most; the real test of how far we achieve this is whether our own staff would recommend our hospitals and we are delighted that the year on year results are improving.”
