Royal Berkshire NHS Foundation Trust named as one of top acute trusts for staff experience

Filter results

Royal Berkshire NHS Foundation Trust has once again been rated as one of the best acute trusts to work for in England, according to the results of the latest NHS Staff Survey – one of the largest workforce surveys in the world.

More than 3,800 Trust staff took part in the 2023 survey– the organisation’s highest ever response rate. Based on the feedback of more than 60% of staff, the trust is among the top performing nationally for staff experience.

In every area of the NHS People Promise, the trust has improved upon its scores from the previous year, and is among the top scoring acute trusts nationally for the following metrics:

  • 90.6% of staff say ‘I feel that my role makes a different to patients/service users'.
  • 86.5% of staff say 'Care of patients/service users is my organisation’s top priority’.
  • 81.6% of staff say ‘My organisation acts on concerns raised by patients/service users’.
  • 70.7% of staff say ‘The team I work in often meets to discuss the team’s effectiveness’.
  • 70.3% of staff say ‘My organisation takes positive action on health and wellbeing’.
  • 62.8% of staff say ‘I am able to make improvements happen in my area of work’.

The trust’s continued year-on-year improvements on staff experience follow a significant investment from the organisation into health and wellbeing including the launch of a dedicated health and wellbeing centre, free health checks, staff GP service and more.

The NHS Staff Survey takes place each year to see how organisations perform against the NHS People Promise – measuring areas such as flexible working, staff engagement, morale, and staff recognition.
