The 2020 NHS Staff Survey has been published today (11 March 2021) and we have produced a range of analysis.

The survey was undertaken during the second wave of COVID-19 (October-November 2020). It demonstrates the impact that the pandemic has had on staff, while also demonstrating how employers have provided effective support on issues such as health and wellbeing.

The survey results highlight the need for ongoing work around staff experience as the service recovers.

Key themes

Out of the ten key themes: 

  • three themes improved: health and wellbeing, bullying and harassment, and violence
  • one of the key themes worsened: team working  
  • six of the themes remained the same: staff engagement, line management, morale, quality, safety and equality and diversity.
