NHS Staff Survey - Join the conversation
The information on this page is being updated and will be published on the new LTHT staff intranet which can be accessed by logging in with your NHS Mail email address.
Making LTHT the Best Place to Work
Every year we invite you to take part in a national survey of NHS staff – it’s a chance to feed back on the issues that matter most to you, to help make meaningful change to the organisation you work in, and to add your voice to the national picture.
Join the Conversation in 2021
The NHS Staff Survey opens 27 September - 26 November, 2021. Everyone at LTHT will receive an email from independent provider, Picker, with a link to take the survey. In 2020 nearly 600,000 people across the NHS responded to the Staff Survey. This year, make sure your voice is heard.
Working together to create meaningful change
We look at the results of the Staff Survey through the reports that independent provider Picker send us. These show us what’s working, what’s not, and where we can do things differently. These themes are then taken forward by project teams – some are happening right now, others have already been delivered!
Staff often ask whether the Staff Survey is anonymous. The answer is yes - the NHS Staff Survey is completely anonymous.
- Independent company Picker will anonymise your answers, which the Trust receives as summary reports at different levels - Trustwide, CSU, department, and team.
- Reminders and competition draws are sent from Picker using a unique ID number that the Trust won’t have access to.
- No one else at LTHT will see your completed survey or be able to identify individual responses.
The Staff Survey should take only 10-15 minutes to complete. All managers are asked to provide 20 minutes during the working day for staff to complete their survey.
Accurate and reliable data
The data produced by the Staff Survey is to the standard of an official statistic. Independent survey provider, Picker, provides us with lots of reports to be able to understand staff feedback at a Trustwide, CSU, department and team level. Managers and their teams are encouraged to make the most of their team reports and using them to inform team huddles and Perfect Ward Boards.
