A summary of the Key Findings 2018 from the HSE National Staff Survey is available here.
HSE Director General John Connaghan has thanked all staff who gave of their time to complete this third Irish public health service wide employee survey ‘Your Opinion Counts’. In a message to staff he underlined his commitment and that of the leadership and management at all levels across the Health Sector to make improvements based on what our staff have said.
The overall survey findings, as well as customised reports for individual organisations will issue to the Chief Executive of each Hospital Group (HG) and the Chief Officer of each CHO Area over the coming weeks.
In terms of follow up to the Survey findings each Hospital Group and Community Healthcare Organisation has been asked to organise their own Post Survey Feedback and Planning Event with a proportional representation of staff over the next couple months. These events will allow staff to input on what are the most pressing areas for improvement and to develop plans to address these areas.
The outcome from each workshop will inform the local improvement plans and national initiatives to be implemented during the year. Using staff survey information to improve the working lives of all staff will ultimately lead to better care for our patients.
