Salford Royal Confirmed as the Best Place to Work in the NHS

Salford Royal’s people rate the Trust as the best place to work in the NHS, according to the national annual NHS Staff Survey (2013). 


All the evidence shows that better motivated staff provide better care to patients.


The survey has revealed that Salford Royal has the highest engagement scores in England for all NHS provider organisations, including acute Trusts, specialist Trusts, Mental Health Services and the Ambulance Service.


Additionally, Salford Royal has the highest scores in many of the key findings within the survey.


These top scores include:


  • Satisfaction levels

  • Being able to recommend the Trust as a place to work or be treated

  • Feeling satisfied with the quality of work and level of patient care they are able to offer

  • Communication

  • Support from immediate managers

  • Team working; and

  • The proportion of people feeling that they received well-structured appraisals


Out of the 28 key findings, Salford Royal was either top or above average in all but two categories.


Chief Executive Sir David Dalton said: “We are absolutely thrilled with these results. For the past two years, we’ve had the best survey results of all acute Trusts so to improve on this position by receiving the best results across all Trusts, of every type, is absolutely fantastic. It’s now our ambition to be considered one of the best places to work in the country, not just in the NHS, but in any sector or industry.


“We know that there’s a strong link between highly engaged workforces and high quality patient care so these results are not only fantastic results for our people but for our patients too.


“We will carry on working hard to ensure our people remain well engaged and we’re all moving in the right direction, together to becoming the safest organisation providing the highest standards of reliable care in the NHS.”
