Results from the National NHS Staff survey revealed today, that employees of NHS Surrey Heath Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) would highly recommend the organisation as a good place to work and feel motivated whilst at work.

In almost all categories, staff scored the CCG more highly in comparison to all other CCGs nationally. In particular, the survey showed that the organisation came best in the country for the ‘Staff motivation at work’ and ‘Recommended as a place to work’ categories.

Furthermore, results showed that staff felt low-levels of pressure from managers in regards to attending work when feeling unwell; low-levels of work-related stress and a 0 per cent score was recorded for ‘staff experiencing harassment, bullying or abuse from patients, relatives or the public in last 12 months’ when compared to all other CCGs.

The survey results demonstrate that NHS Surrey Heath CCG is one of the best performing CCGs in the country in relation to staff satisfaction and an overall great place to work.

Dr Andy Brooks, Chief Officer of NHS Surrey Heath CCG, welcomed the results: “I am delighted with our results and that in the majority of categories we are above the national average and in many cases we scored near the top of all CCGs nationally.

"At NHS Surrey Heath CCG, we have been successful in creating 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. I am very proud of our staff who are passionate about the services they commission for the residents of Surrey Heath.”  

He added: “I am extremely thankful for the hard work and dedication of our staff. It is due to their on-going commitment and hard work that the CCG is able to provide the best services for our patients.”

"There is still work to do and we will continue to improve on this. We recognise the incredible work staff do in difficult circumstances and it is a fundamental aim to further improve wellbeing at work."
