Anna Dugdale, chief executive, said: 'It is important that we know how our staff feel and it makes me really proud of our teams who make NNUH a great place to work. It is particularly encouraging that our staff also recommend our hospitals as a place to receive treatment.
'Our vision is to provide every patient with the care we want for those we love the most; the real test of how far we achieve this is whether our own staff would recommend our hospitals and we are delighted that the year on year results are improving.'
