Each year our CCG takes part in the NHS staff survey. The survey measures staff satisfaction within our organisation based on a number of different areas including training, learning and development, appraisals and team work and respect and value at work.
Taking part in the survey is mandatory for all NHS Trusts – foundation trusts, acute and specialist hospital trusts, ambulance service trusts, mental health, community and learning disability trusts – but voluntary for other parts of the NHS such as clinical commissioning groups, social enterprises and commissioning support units.
The NHS – both nationally and locally – uses results from the survey to improve care for patients and working conditions for staff.
The Greenwich CCG staff survey report is produced by the Picker Institute, which conducted the survey on our behalf. An action and improvement plan is currently being developed based on the findings of the survey.

Neil Kennett-Brown, Managing Director of NHS Greenwich CCG, said:
"We welcome the results of the 2017 staff survey. As a CCG, we aim to create an environment where staff feel valued and well supported; where they are enthusiastic about their work and would highly recommend the organisation as a place to work.
"We recognise that there is still work to do and we will continue to improve on this. The CCG has been going through a transitional period since financial turnaround in 16/17, and we are now establishing a strong and capable permanent team, and have a growing confidence as an organisation. We are extremely thankful for the continued hard work and dedication of our staff and we are committed to further improving wellbeing at work.
"We're delighted that more staff have taken part this year and we are currently working with our staff to develop a detailed action plan by the end of 2018 to address the areas for improvement identified by the staff survey."
