Eight out of 10 staff employed by a Sheffield health care trust feel satisfied with the quality of work and patient care they are able to deliver, a national survey has revealed.
The study found 81 per cent of workers at Sheffield Health and Social Care NHS Foundation Trust felt they were able to do their job to a standard they were personally pleased with, and deliver the patient care they aspire to.
The figure for the trust - which provides mental health, learning disability and substance misuse services to the city - is significantly higher than the national average for mental health and learning disability trusts.
The survey for 2010, which was reported to the Care Quality Commission, also showed the number of staff feeling work pressure was below the national average and highlighted that the trust had improved on its position the year before. Dean Wilson, director of human resources, said: “We welcome the findings of this survey as it provides us with a snapshot of what a good proportion of our staff feel.”
