Clean bill of health for South Warwickshire Foundation Trust

Leamington Editorial 24th Feb, 2020   0

STAFF have given South Warwickshire Foundation Trust (SWFT) a clean bill of health.

The annual staff survey by the Department of Health questioned employees about working life at the trust. Answers were given out of ten about the trust as an employer and healthcare provider.

And SWFT was among the highest organisations for providing a safe environment against violence coming out with a 9.7 rating.

It also ranked highly for safety, with staff scoring 7.1 and saying they felt safer than in previous years.




It also scored 9.4 for equality, diversity and inclusion, 7.7 for care and 6.7 for morale.

Trust chief executive Glen Burley said: “As we increase the use of technology and facilities to improve the way we provide care, it is important to remember our most valuable asset is people.


“I am a firm believer that happy, healthy and motivated staff deliver the best care to patients. I am delighted to see morale is high among our teams and our trust is one of the best NHS organisations in providing a safe environment.

“The staff survey is a key indicator of how well we are supporting our staff to provide exceptional care for our patients. We want to attract and retain the best staff and to do so we intend to be one of the top places to work in the NHS.

“In December 2019, the trust achieved the highest CQC rating of ‘Outstanding.’ It confirmed the care provided to local people is amongst the very best in the NHS. Therefore, it’s also encouraging to be once again ranked as one of the best NHS employers, with our results getting stronger each year.”
