Reflection of Common Themes between the National Patient Experience Survey and the Your Opinion Counts Staff Survey 2018

Private sector research has long demonstrated that there is a relationship between staff experience and customer satisfaction. Research into this relationship in health sectors has lagged in comparison but has in recent times started to emerge. In 2016, an analysis of themes between the 2016 Your Opinion Counts staff survey and the 2017 patient experience survey indicated that there is a relationship between staff and patient experience. Advancing on that work, common themes where extracted and analysed for the more recent staff and patient surveys further highlighting how this relationship impacts on patient care in Irish Health Services.
