Positive outcomes for HPFT in NHS Staff Survey 2019 results
The 2019 NHS National Staff Survey saw improved results from last year.
Our staff have told us that HPFT is becoming an even better place to work. Of the 91 questions asked, 73 of these show a big improvement from last year and 57 questions are better than the national average.
This year staff have told us that we have a culture that is focussed on safety and for the second year running we have again achieved a national ‘best score’ for the theme of safety culture amongst mental health and learning disability trusts.
They have also told us that the care of our service users is the most important thing at HPFT and that they would recommend HPFT as a place to work and as a place for their friends and family to receive care.

Supporting our staff
We have six staff networks which reflect the diversity of the organisation: BME, mental health, women, disability, LGBT and carers. The networks offer a great opportunity to connect with other people, share information and ideas and receive support.
Health and wellbeing
We are committed to the health and wellbeing of all our staff. In 2016/17 we introduced our Staff Health and Wellbeing Strategy as well as a number of events including: mini-health checks, fun runs, team challenges and mindfulness programmes which were piloted in four locations.
The monthly Inspire Awards offer an excellent opportunity to recognise and reward those members of staff who consistently demonstrate our values. Our annual Staff Awards celebrate the outstanding achievements of individual staff, teams and volunteers.
Throughout the year we run a number of events which give our Executive Team an opportunity to listen and respond to feedback and for staff to discuss their ideas and have a real say in key decisions.
Our Big Listen and Local Listen events are very popular. As a result of the Executive Team taking on board comments from staff we introduced initiatives including: creating a health and social committee, relaunching our ban bullying pledge and introducing the bullying and harassment helpline.
Members of the Executive Team are also present at our bi annual Good to Great roadshows which give staff the perfect opportunity to input into the continued development of our ‘Good to Great’ strategy.
The Schwartz Rounds are an integral and increasingly popular form of staff engagement. They are delivered across our sites and provide a structured forum where all staff can come together to discuss the emotional and social aspects of working in healthcare.
