As a new feature on our staff engagement web pages we plan to have regular features on trusts that have implemented interesting approaches to staff engagement. These case studies are in addition to the good practice examples highlighted in our Staff Engagement Toolkit and our regular newsletter. The case studies look at a range of different staff engagement ideas which we hope you will find useful.
Our forthcoming case studies will focus on staff engagement developments and best practice taken from the following trusts:
- Birmingham Children's Hospital a specialist hospital which has traditionally scored well in the staff survey on engagement. They felt it needed to raise its staff engagement as part of an overall change in the trust with the aim of improving services. The trust has also pioneered ways of involving patients and families and feeding back information to staff.
- Wigan, Wrightington and Leigh Hospital Trust is an acute hospital which had reasonable scores on some dimensions of engagement, but felt it needed to raise the level of involvement to meet the efficiency challenges facing the service whilst maintaining quality.
- Medway Community Health is a social enterprise arising from PCT community services. It has adopted a new approach to engagement as part of its transition.
Sharing best practice
We are in the process of finalising the case studies, however in the meantime we do have further information which we can share and discuss with you in more detail.
We are always interested in updating our information on staff engagement and partnership working, if you would like to share your experiences please contact Steven Weeks firstname.lastname@example.org
