Survey reveals healthy outlook of NHS staff

The
working lives of NHS staff in London has improved over the past three years
according to research.

A
study of 30,000 London-based NHS staff claims that job satisfaction, training
and development, health & safety, and working relationships have improved
since 2000.

According
to the poll, 64 per cent of staff said their job was interesting and
challenging offering a ‘feeling of accomplishment’.

The
number of staff with personal development plans has grown from a third to more
than half, while 54 per cent have formal performance appraisals.

The
study, by the Institute for Employment Studies, also found that staff are more
comfortable about making complaints and believe these will be acted upon.
