Our staff have been invited to give their honest feedback and ideas for improvement – as we look to help shape our future vision.
We are reaching out to our 5,700-strong workforce to share their experiences working at the organisation.
Staff have been invited to leave anonymous feedback on a range of themes – including a reflection on its core values and honest views about improvements needed.
Susy Cook, chief people officer, said: “Having worked at the organisation for a number of months, I have already seen so many examples of the outstanding care our staff provide.
“But we know we can improve – improvement is a continuous and never ending journey.
“Following the outbreak of the pandemic and everything that led to, a real light has been shone on the NHS.
“Over the last two and a half years we have seen the very best of the NHS – its care, compassion, its resilience and dedication to innovation.
“We are resolute and determined in our ambition for this organisation, our community deserves the very highest quality of care.”
Using your feedback
The Trust will follow up online staff feedback on the Clever Together platform with a host of staff events, where the workforce will be encouraged to be open and honest with their views.
Susy added: “We can already see in the feedback so far that a range of themes are developing.
“We are asking our staff for that honesty – both positive and otherwise – and I am so pleased we’re getting that. We now need many more staff to join the conversation and give their own views.
“This will undoubtedly lead to some uncomfortable conversations, culture is not always a comfortable subject.
“We are holding a mirror up to ourselves and, over the next few weeks and months, will be acting on what we are being told by those who know best, our outstanding workforce.
“We want our population to always look to us as their first health provider of choice and we want to show healthcare staff that we are where their future is.”
