March 2017 – As a Trust we are celebrating significant improvements in our latest National Staff Survey Results!  We have scored above average in most Key Findings Nationally against all other Mental Health and Learning Disability Trust’s.  In addition, based on a review and analysis of the 32 key findings from the 2016 survey, produced by Picker Europe, SSSFT is the top performing Mental Health and Learning Disability Trust on the scatter Map produced by Optimise Limited in their recent blog, available below.  This map shows SSSFT in the top right hand cover, highlighting that our Trust’s Leadership and Culture is significantly improving against our peers in the eyes of our staff, and the overall best positive trend year-on-year.  Not only that but SSSFT has the best Staff Survey results across all types of Trust, including acute and community.

This culture shift and positive trend / performance is all thanks to the staff at all levels that work at SSSFT, we all know that high quality patient care is at the centre of everything that we do, but in order to deliver the greatest standard of care, we as staff we need to feel motivated, valued, engaged and able to contribute to improvements in our areas of work which is evident within SSSFT.  Please be encouraged to watch our staff survey results video below which highlights the journey we have been on as a Trust over the last five years why the survey is important to our staff and our patient outcomes.
