Salisbury scores well on independent staff survey 

Staff have rated Salisbury District Hospital well in a recent  national survey,  highlighting the hospital as a good place to work or receive treatment.

A random sample of 800 staff were asked their views of working for the Trust based on the four staff pledges in the NHS Constitution. These cover staff roles and responsibilities, training and development, management support and staff involvement, as well as opportunities to maintain staff  health and wellbeing. There were also two additional themes looking at staff satisfaction and equality and diversity.

When compared to other hospitals, the Trust  scored above average in 17 indicators and below average in eight.

Alison Kingscott,  Director of Human Resources and Organisational Development said: “The results this year are  excellent news for our patients as they demonstrate  that our staff believe that Salisbury District Hospital is a good  place to work and receive treatment.  It is great to get independent recognition of how well motivated and engaged our staff are and keen to contribute to improvements at work.“

“The results also show that we have listened  to what staff told us previously and taken  action where it was needed. For instance, many more staff have had a well structured appraisal than they have had  in the past. Appraisals are important as they ensure that staff are able to do their work to the best of their ability and that they have the support that they need to ensure their own wellbeing and personal development.”

“We acknowledge that  there are areas requiring  improvements and we will be looking at the results in more detail over the next few weeks and developing an action plan to address those. “
