There are three main surveys. All of them are anonymous, you can’t be identified and so only you know what you’ve put. The answers and numbers are crunched by outside organisations and then they write and send us reports about what people have said.
There’s a National Staff Survey around September time where everyone in the Trust gets the chance to fill in a survey. For the Investors In People (IIP) report, there’s a survey, some group discussions and also one-to-one chats with people. All this feedback goes towards our accreditation score. We’re chuffed to be at Silver level at the moment.
Finally, there’s the staff Friends and Family Test which is a quick online survey three times a year which just asks if people at the Trust would recommend it as a place to work or have health care.
