The majority of staff working within the National Health Service (NHS) are
happy with the quality of the care they are in a position to offer.
According to new figures from the Department of Health, in its ninth annual
NHS Staff Survey, workers are increasingly satisfied with their jobs and staff
engagement is high.
One noticeable trend is the success of foundation trusts, which now make up
nine of the top ten performing hospitals in the UK.
Portsmouth Hospitals NHS Trust and Oxford Health NHS Foundation Trust were
named as the most improved facilities in the country when it comes to providing
surgery and rehabilitation.
More than 1.7 million people work within the NHS to provide top-quality care
to Britons free of charge.
Secretary of state for health Andrew Lansley said: "The number of staff
happy with the standard of care remains stable, with some foundation trusts
performing to a very high standard."
