Your voice counts – NHS Staff Survey

An SPF and NHS England joint statement to encourage staff to take part in the 2022 NHS Staff Survey.

30 September 2022

The SPF would like to take this opportunity, in partnership with NHS England, to encourage everyone to take part in the NHS Staff Survey.

The NHS Staff Survey is vital to really understanding what it’s like for you as one of the 1.3 million people working in the NHS. It provides information to assess how the People Promise – what people tell us is important to improving their working experience – is progressing. 

The NHS Staff Survey is anonymous. Every completed survey is treated confidentially and cannot be traced back to you.

Your voice influences not just what your own organisation does, but also what happens nationally in the future on issues like flexible working, retention, violence, and equality and inclusion. Your feedback helps us to work with government and regulators to improve your working experience and ultimately ensure the best quality of patient care.

As the SPF, we explore the information from the NHS Staff Survey in detail with our colleagues at NHS England. The information you provide is so important, so please take up the opportunity to take part when you get the invitation from your organisation.

The SPF brings together NHS Employers, NHS trade unions, Health Education England, NHS England and the Department of Health and Social Care (including government ministers), to contribute to the development and implementation of policy that impacts on the health workforce.
