Our staff

Our staff are integral to the smooth running of this Foundation Trust. They continue to earn a good reputation from patients and visitors, not only for the quality of clinical care they provide, but also for listening and communicating, and going that extra mile for those in need of support.

We are dedicated to helping our staff develop to their full potential.

On 1 April the Foundation Trust employed 2291 whole time equivalent (WTE) staff, a reduction of almost 150 WTE on the previous year. This reduction was achieved by not filling all vacancies as long as it did not affect the quality of patient care.

In autumn 2010 our staff took part in the national NHS staff survey, and the results were published in March 2011. On four key measures our scores improved on the previous year, and outperformed the average for other English acute trusts.

These were:

• The ability to contribute to improvements at work

• Training in equality and diversity in last 12 months

• Levels of physical violence from patients/relatives in last 12 months

• Staff reports of errors, near misses or incidents witnessed
