Third of NHS staff do not feel secure about raising care concerns, By Will Hazell Nursing Times

Nearly one third of NHS employees do not agree that they would feel secure raising concerns about unsafe clinical practice, according to the 2014 NHS staff survey.

The survey results, published 24th February 2015, paint a picture of increasing pressure on those who work within the health service. Of the survey’s 29 “key findings”, 15 have deteriorated since last year, 11 have improved, one has remained the same, and two cannot be compared due to changes in the questions. Sixty-four per cent of staff surveyed said if a friend or relative needed treatment they would be happy with the standard of care provided by their organisation, a slight decrease on the 65% recorded in 2013.

Picker Institute Europe, which carried out the survey, said the fall was “concerning” because the measure is strongly related to patient experiences of care. Fifty-six per cent of staff said they would recommend their organisation as a place to work, down from 58% in 2013. There was a marked decrease in the number of staff satisfied with their level of pay, from 38% in 2013 to 33% this year, representing the first drop in pay satisfaction since 2011. Only 29% felt there are enough staff for them to do their jobs properly, down one percentage point on the previous year.
