Trusts with the biggest falls in staff confidence in care provided

Several large teaching hospitals are among those which saw the steepest declines in the proportion of staff who would recommend the care of their organisation, according to the NHS staff survey results.

Norfolk and Norwich University Hospitals Foundation Trust, University Hospitals Birmingham, Liverpool University Hospitals FT and Nottingham University Hospitals Trust saw declines of 12 percentage points or more in 2021 — for the proportion of staff saying they would be happy for a friend or relative to be treated at their organisation. This was double the average drop in the acute sector.

In a message to staff, Sue Musson, chair of Liverpool University Hospitals Trust, said about her trust’s overall results: “On behalf of the trust board, I want to apologise to everyone that the experience of working at the trust is so deeply unsatisfactory for so many colleagues.

“It would be wrong to suggest that there are quick fixes to these issues. The promise I can give you today is a genuine commitment to listen and learn; we particularly need to understand what would make the difference for colleagues across the trust, recognising that there may well be different answers in different parts of the organisation.

“We will seek to learn from the trusts that have demonstrated the best staff experience scores and to implement best practices at pace. We will also be seeking support and input from national and staff side colleagues.”
