Wex­ham Park job sat­is­fac­tion sur­vey proof of hard work

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

A SUR­VEY which has found staff at Wex­ham Park Hos­pi­tal are among the most mo­ti­vated in the NHS is be­ing held up as fur­ther ev­i­dence that the hos­pi­tal has turned a cor­ner.

The re­sults of the na­tional NHS staff sur­vey pub­lished by NHS Eng­land, show peo­ple work­ing at the hos­pi­tal rated their job sat­is­fac­tion among the high­est 20 per cent of all NHS hos­pi­tal staff.

They also ranked among the top 20 per cent for rec­om­mend­ing their hos­pi­tal as a place to work or re­ceive treat­ment.

In to­tal, they rated their hos­pi­tal sig­nif­i­cantly bet­ter or among the very best in 20 of the 32 cat­e­gories mea­sured in the sur­vey.

Janet King, di­rec­tor of HR and cor­po­rate ser­vices, said: “This is great news, not just for our staff but also the com­mu­ni­ties we care for.

“We be­lieve that happy staff equals great care.”

It is the first time the an­nual staff sur­vey has pre­sented Frim­ley Health’s re­sults as a sin­gle trust since man­agers at Frim­ley Park Hos­pi­tal over Heather­wood and Wex­ham Park Hospi­tals in 2014.

Pre­vi­ously, peo­ple work­ing for Frim­ley Park Hos­pi­tal reg­u­larly rated their place of work among the very best in the NHS, while Wex­ham Park and Heather­wood Hospi­tals had rated poorly with their staff.

Ms King added: “Ear­lier this month, we had the fan­tas­tic re­sults of Wex­ham Park’s Care Qual­ity Com­mis­sion in­spec­tion, which the Chief In­spec­tor of Hospi­tals de­clared as the most im­pres­sive ex­am­ple of im­prove­ment his team had seen.

“This is fur­ther ev­i­dence that we have turned a cor­ner. The mo­ti­va­tion and en­gage­ment of col­leagues at our Berk­shire hospi­tals is on the rise and re­main­ing high at Frim­ley Park.

“The an­nual sur­vey is a very use­ful bench­mark to see where we should fo­cus fu­ture ef­forts.

“We know we have more work to do in a num­ber of ar­eas, for ex­am­ple in­creas­ing the num­ber of staff ap­praisals.”
