The 2014 NHS Staff Survey findings show growing pressure on those working in the NHS, but also that the vast majority of staff remain positive about their work and the service they provide.
Over 255,000 staff responded to the confidential survey, published today by NHS England.
Of the 29 key indicators, 11 have shown improvement since 2013, one has remained the same, 15 have deteriorated and two cannot be compared due to changes in the questions.
Some of the key findings include:
- Two thirds (67 per cent) of staff said they thought patient care was the top priority for their organisation.
- Three quarters of staff reported that patient experience measures are collected in their organisation and 50 per cent said such feedback is used to improve patient care.
- Two thirds (68 per cent) of staff feel able to contribute to improvements.
- Two thirds (68 per cent) of staff would feel safe to raise concerns.
- Staff do feel under greater work pressure (score increased from 3.06 to 3.09 in one year).
