Survey says SWFT is one of the top places to work in the NHS

Leamington Editorial 12th Mar, 2024   0

SWFT is a top place to work – according to the people who work there.

South Warwickshire University NHS Foundation Trust has ranked fourth in the country for recommended place to work in the NHS.

The Trust, which was ranked in the top five nationally in the last NHS Staff Survey, has not only maintained but improved upon all of its previous year’s results, performing higher than average in each of the nine key areas.

The staff survey is commissioned by the Department of Health and invites a variety of staff to answer questions anonymously about the Trust, as an employer and healthcare provider.




SWFT places a lot of emphasis on the importance of staff feedback and uses the results of the staff survey to identify where improvements can be made to support employees. Feedback from previous surveys has resulted in the Trust focussing on enhancing staff wellbeing, becoming a more flexible employer and championing equality and inclusivity.

SWFT managing director Adam Carson said: “I am delighted that the Trust has continued to perform well in all areas of the staff survey. Everything we are able to achieve is thanks to the dedication of our teams.


The last few years have been extremely challenging with higher levels of demand than ever before, but the commitment from all of our teams enables us to continually deliver excellent levels of care to those that need us most.

“It is important that we do recognise the increased pressure on staff though and the value of offering them as much support as possible.”

Ola Ayeni, equality, diversity and inclusion lead at SWFT, added: “It is fantastic to work in an organisation that actively champions equality, diversity and inclusion. There is a dedication from SWFT to raise the standards of diversity and equality and make sure our Trust reflects the values of fairness, respect, and equal opportunity for all.”
