Welcome to the Staff Engagement section of our website
Do you ask staff what their suggestions for improvement are? How do you create opportunities for staff to develop solutions to challenges they face daily?
We believe passionately in the knowledge, creativity and commitment of staff. We also believe that because staff have a unique insight into the challenges of their services, they are often best placed to develop practical and sustainable solutions with patients and service users.
If you are interested in the welfare and experience of your service users and staff, in improving clinical outcomes or productivity and cost management, then staff engagement is critical. International research tells us that staff engagement is essential part of improving quality. It is a key driver on the Framework for Improving Quality in our Health Service and is intrinsically linked to the other drivers.
