Christine Allen, chief executive said: “Overall this is a very positive report and we are in the best 20% of acute trusts in 14 areas.”

“We will continue to study the findings of the survey in detail and look to see where further improvements can be made.”

  • Well done to all! My own experiences of the Hospital have always been good ones. A first class facility and in these days of huge pressure on NHS staff, something to celebrate.

  • ".....The percentage of staff witnessing errors and experiencing harassment, bullying or abuse from patients...." It would be interesting to run the same survey across the same people with the question wording of "patients" changed for "management"

  • Did those who done the survey also ask " how many cases of physical and verbal abuse from both patients and visitors go unreported. They need to ask the whole of the frontline staff not just a certain minority.
