Staff showing commitment

Staff at Nottingham University Hospitals Trust are committed to delivering high quality care for patients, according to a new survey.

Workers at NUH also feel they make a difference to the lives of the people they care for, according to the results.

The findings showed 89 per cent felt the work they did made a difference to patients, 85 per cent said they do more than is required and 96 per cent said they try to help colleagues whenever they can.

The survey also recorded a fall in the number of hospital staff who said they had experienced violence from patients or service users and bullying or abuse from patients or service users.

Carried out in October last year, it was the eighth annual NHS National Staff Survey.

The Care Quality Commission will use the results in regulatory activities such as registration, the monitoring of ongoing compliance, and reviews and to set out national findings.
