Today (Wednesday, 30 March 2022) sees the publication of the 2021 NHS Staff Survey results. The results show a challenging picture and a decline in staff experience compared with the previous year.

The survey, conducted in autumn 2021, highlights a range of pressures on the NHS and a need for action to address these challenges.

It also marks a shift from the 2020 survey, having undergone a redevelopment to align with the NHS People Promise, and now focusing on the seven People Promise themes.
