MPFT is celebrating best staff survey results ever

We are celebrating today, one week ahead of finding out whether we are the Health Service Journal’s mental health Trust of the year.

We have had the best national NHS staff survey results in our history, in a year where the NHS has been pushed to its limits, fighting an international pandemic.

95% of colleagues who responded to the survey agreed that the organisation takes positive action on health and wellbeing.

Neil Carr, Chief Executive, said “This is a phenomenal achievement, given the challenges of the last 12 months. I am incredibly proud that our staff have felt supported. Valued staff provide better care to the people they are looking after and that’s a fact.”

There was a 10 point increase in those staff saying that communication between senior managers and staff was effective. This is more than double the increase seen by the best performing Trusts.  

Alex Brett, Director of People, said “Over the last 12 months, it has been so important to stay connected with our colleagues; helping to keep them and our patients safe.

“Being open and honest with staff is how we do things at MPFT and I believe it has helped us recruit more staff, retain the ones we have and build a culture of going the extra mile for our colleagues.”

We will know on 17th March whether we have been crowned mental health provider of the year by the prestigious Health Service Journal.
