A survey has revealed that staff at NHS Hardwick Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) are among the most satisfied and highly motivated NHS workers in the country.
Employees rated the CCG the second highest in the country out of all 284 NHS organisations for recommending their employer as a place to work and for staff engagement.
They gave the CCG the third highest score in the country for job satisfaction and motivation.
The national NHS Staff survey by NHS England ran for six weeks at the end of last year with online questionnaires sent to all CCG staff.
The CCG was one of only five CCGs in the country to achieve a 100 per cent response rate – the joint highest out of all 284 respondents.
Andy Gregory, chief Officer at the CCG, said: “These results show how our staff are committed to making a difference for patients.
“We value our people as our greatest asset and are delighted that that they feel supported, highly motivated and satisfied with the good work that they are doing.
“The high scores we have achieved nationally show that we have created a high performance culture in which our staff are able to offer more of their capability and potential to improve the quality of care for patients.”
The CCG represents 16 GP practices, acting on behalf of more than 100,000 patients living in north east Derbyshire including South Normanton, Creswell, Langwith, Pinxton, Clay Cross, Renishaw, Shirebrook, Tibshelf, Wingerworth, Alfreton, Bolsover, Grassmoor and North Wingfield.
