The survey was run by the Nursing Times and Health Service Journal, which gathered views from employers and staff. These were then analysed by research firm Ipsos Mori, with guidance and support from NHS Employers.
In its citation for the Trust, the assessors said: This medium sized Trust inspires affection and loyalty from its employees and has a high level of job satisfaction. Staff comments include the value placed on job security - a reflection of the broader economic situation - and the feeling of ownership of the Trust.
Alan Denton, Director of Human Resources at Salisbury NHS Foundation Trust said: “ We are proud of our staff and the work that they do on a day-to-day basis for our patients. We feel it’s important to provide opportunities for education and training, as well as supporting staff in their own wellbeing. It’s particularly pleasing to see that this has been recognised in the Healthcare 100, with the Trust finishing 37th out of the 225 organisations that took part.” ends
Notes to editors:
All organisations applying to be considered for the Healthcare 100 were sent a set of paper questionnaires, which were distributed amongst a random sample of staff. The Trust also completed an online employer survey. The questionnaire and online survey were weighted and data adjustments took place to take into account employee’s occupational group, level of management responsibility and patient contact and sector, to provide a final score.
