The annual NHS Staff Survey shows that staff remain positive about their work and the service they provide despite growing pressure on those working in the NHS.
Commenting on the survey results, Danny Mortimer, Chief Executive of the NHS Employers organisation, said:
“The annual survey reflects the commitment of NHS staff to deliver excellent patient care amidst immense pressure and challenges facing the health service.
“I am pleased to see progress in areas such as staff engagement and confidence in raising concerns. The survey also highlights however, areas where more action must be taken, such as work pressure on staff and poor behaviour, including bullying.
“The variation in staff experience across the NHS remains a real concern for employers, and Boards will want to do more to address this.
"NHS Employers will continue to support NHS organisations with a range of resources and by sharing practical examples of good practice including those related to the physical and mental wellbeing of staff, as well as staff engagement and diversity.”
