THE results of a national NHS staff survey indicate significant improvements at Arrowe Park Hospital.

It found that 5,500 members of staff felt much more positive and enthusiastic about their place of work.

According to the latest findings, stress levels have reduced by eight per cent since 2014, which is one of the best scores nationally, and the workforce is feeling better supported by their managers.

The survey is recognised as one of the key measures in ensuring that the views of employees working in the NHS inform local improvements.

Wirral University Teaching Hospital Trust's chief executive David Allison said: "These results show that we have come a long way since the previous disappointing NHS Staff Survey.

"We are heading in the right direction and I am immensely proud of the hard work and commitment being shown right across the workforce.

"I am particularly pleased to see a significant rise in the number of staff who would recommend the Trust as a place to work or receive treatment."

The number of employees witnessing incidents that could harm patients or staff and the number who experience bullying, harassment, discrimination or abuse at work was amongst the lowest in the country.

Addressing the findings, director of workforce, James Mawrey said: "We are collecting more feedback than ever before and as a senior management team, we are committed to ensuring that staff understand how this is being used to inform decisions."
