Survey reveals more staff than ever before are proud to work for us

More NHS Kernow staff than ever before feel the organisation is investing in their work to improve health services for people in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly, a survey has revealed.
The latest national survey, published on Tuesday 18 February, shows that our colleagues continue to feel positively about the organisation.

More than 200 colleagues gave feedback about what it is like to work here. Colleagues were asked a broad range of questions including their long-term job satisfaction, morale, support and opportunities to progress.

NHS Kernow staff feedback on questions regarding respect, choosing how to approach your work and encouragement by managers, was either the same or higher than the national average based on similar CCGs that took part in the survey.

78 per cent of staff responded to the staff survey andd highlights included:

  • 3 out of 4 people said they are happy with the amount of support they are given
  • 4 out of 5 people felt like their role made a difference to patients
  • colleagues reported good relationships with their line managers
  • more than 4 out of 5 said their line manager was supportive in a crisis and takes a positive interest in their health and wellbeing
  • more staff than ever are being supported to receive training and development
  • 4 in 5 feel their manager values their work

Jackie Pendleton, NHS Kernow’s chief officer, said: “ I’m really pleased with the results of the 2019 staff survey. Following the great results we had in 2018, we were determined to keep working hard to continue to make NHS Kernow a great place to work. We’ve spent time speaking with staff and identified some key areas we wanted to focus on such as health and well-being. I’m pleased to see that much of this work has been reflected in our results this year.”
