Nationally, every year a staff survey is carried out throughout the NHS, giving an overall indicator of staff experience and engagement .
A randomly selected cross section of staff are invited to complete the confidential survey which is undertaken by an external provider. The results provide a snapshot of staff opinion in relation to the key pledges of the NHS constitution.
- To provide all staff with clear roles and responsibilities and rewarding jobs for teams and individuals that make a difference to patients, their families and carers and communities.
- To provide all staff with personal development, access to appropriate training for their jobs and line management support to succeed.
- To provide support and opportunities for staff to maintain their health, well-being and safety.
- To engage staff in decisions that affect them and the services they provide, individually, through representative organisations and through local partnership working arrangements. All staff will be empowered to put forward ways to deliver better and safer services for patients and their families.
The findings also allow the Trust to compare its performance with other similar Trusts within the NHS.
The NHS staff survey for all trusts across the country takes place in the last quarter of each calendar year and NHS Staff Sturvey Co-ordination Centre site provides details. The latest AWP results, are available below, along with results from previous years.
In addition, AWP carries out a range of local surveys to obtain staff views on a variety of topics to influence change within the organisation.
