National Staff Survey

The final figures are in and you did brilliantly - thank you.

The People Engagement Team is thrilled to bits with the response rates to the 2023 National Staff Survey and would like to say a massive thank you to everyone who completed their survey!

Following calculations around new starters and leavers etc, we can announce that the final response rate across the Trust was 50%, that’s 1,569 responses in all. This is 6% higher than our 2022 total response rate. Our Bank Staff response rate was 27% (131 responses), 12% higher when comparing with 2022. For the first time we also surveyed our volunteers and they have achieved an impressive 23% response rate.

There are 49 teams that have increased their response rate and have been entered into a draw with the chance of winning one of five £200 vouchers. The winning teams can decide how they would like to spend vouchers, with hundreds of retailers to choose from. The five winners will be revealed on Sara’s Trustwide Festive All Staff Huddle, 20 December at 2pm, so make sure you tune in! Team final response rates can be accessed here.

As well as the team incentive, we’ve had 32 colleagues who have each won £100 voucher. Lorraine Wray, Support Worker was one of the final winners, Lorraine who completed her paper survey said she is thrilled and shocked to be a winner and looks forward to spending her prize voucher. Congratulations to Lorraine and all our winners.

So, what happens next? As the NHS Staff Survey is an official statistic and the results need to be carefully checked to meet the highest standards of quality and accuracy, whilst also protecting confidentiality and anonymity, it can take a little while to publish the results. The Trust will receive initial results under Embargo in February, and we hope to share data with teams in early March, with all data being accessible to all colleagues on the ECHO portal in April. ECHO is the Trusts reporting tool, you can see 2022 results here.

We look forward to sharing your results in the New Year and hearing how your Intention Plans will help to shape what matters to you. Thank you!
