Trust staff survey welcomes ‘excellent’ set of results
01 Apr 22
Results of the 2021 NHS Staff Survey have been published and Hertfordshire Partnership University NHS Foundation Trust (HPFT) is delighted to learn that the feedback among its staff has been overwhelmingly positive.
More than half of staff at the Trust took part in the survey, which is an opportunity for all to have their voices heard about what it’s like to work at HPFT, including both the good and not so good.
When compared with the other 51 mental health, learning disability and autism trusts (Mental Health & Learning Disability and Mental Health, Learning Disability & Community Trusts) in England, the Trust scored above average for all but three of 104 questions and achieved a national best score for motivation. Staff engagement levels are also well above the average.
Among the highlights are that staff:
- Are proud to work for HPFT and are proud of the standard of care provided
- Continue to be engaged, motivated and invested in everything it does
- Feel colleagues, managers and teams demonstrate the Trust’s values daily
- Feel supported and looked after through health and well-being support and flexible working
- Are confident to raise concerns and have them addressed.

Trust Chief Executive Karen Taylor said: “These results show that we are one of the best employers in the country and I am proud of how they reflect on our staff, our teams, our services, and how the wider organisation supports staff and how they live and demonstrate our values daily.
“Despite everything we have faced together during the COVID-19 pandemic over the last two years, our staff are as committed and dedicated to our service users, their families and carers and each other, as ever.
“Although not everything is perfect and there are areas where we need to make improvements, our staff have demonstrated that the Trust is a great place to work and where they feel valued and I owe a debt of thanks for all that they do to make lives better for our service users and our communities.”
