Staff Survey Results

The 2014 National Staff Survey Results were published on 24 February.

The results show areas of significant concern which we need to focus on to make AWP a better place to work.

However, the results also show that change is possible when we make a targeted effort. For example over the past year:

  • 91% staff received an appraisal
  • 79% staff received health and safety training
  • 68% staff received equality and diversity training
  • 70% staff agreed they feel secure to raise concerns about unsafe clinical practice. This finding is particularly positive in the light of the recent Freedom to Speak Up report

Iain Tulley, Chief Executive says,

"Whilst it's difficult to read in black and white that so many of our colleagues would not recommend AWP as a place to work or receive treatment, we have developed a radical development program designed to deliver the necessary improvements".

To tackle the areas of concern and to make AWP a good place to work, the Trust is making the following improvements:

  • A new team-based working approach for all staff, to enable them to work smarter and support each other better.
  • Training for managers to improve their practical skills and gain a greater understanding of their responsibilities.
  • The launch of a robust Bullying and Harassment Policy, to encourage staff to report concerns about safety or safeguarding and to improve the culture and environment for staff and service users.
  • A focus on localities and addressing in depth the messages given by staff on staffing levels, time to care and management visibility and support.

The improvement in results in some areas since 2013 suggests that the Trust can make effective changes and this will continue to be built upon.
