Hospitals are a good place to work
Published 11/04/08



For the fourth year running, staff at the Oxford Radcliffe Hospitals have claimed to enjoy high levels of job satisfaction.

And workers at the Royal Berkshire Hospital, Reading are also content, according to the annual national survey of NHS staff published this week by the Healthcare Commission.

Staff at the Royal Berkshire Hospital say team work is effective, with a large number claiming they work closely together and jointly monitor achievements and objectives. Employees have also reported notable improvements in the availability of hand-washing materials, while the number of workers who experienced physical violence from patients or their relatives in the last 12 months " ten per cent " was below average compared to other acute hospital trusts in England.

In the survey, which is conducted independently and sent to a cross-section of employees in the NHS, the Radcliffe has a higher than average percentage of staff who say they have supportive managers, good access to training and development and to flexible working opportunities.

Staff here also report working less overtime than in previous years and that they are among the least stressed within the NHS. The number intending to leave the Trust is lower than last year and well below the national average.


The number of staff who say they get feedback on how well they are doing their jobs and feel recognised for their good work is also higher at the John Radcliffe Hospitals than the national average.
