Making the NHS the best place to work

Closed 30 Nov 2019

Opened 14 Oct 2019

Overview

In line with commitments made in the NHS Long Term Plan and the Interim People Plan, we are working hard to listen to a wide range of views to develop a new core offer for all people working in and across the NHS. We believe we should strengthen the NHS Constitution's commitment to treating our staff - our people - fairly and equally to create a working environment that is supportive, inclusive and offers personal and professional growth. In doing so, we will make the NHS the best place to work.

It is our intention that this new core offer will drive:

  • action to support the changes our people tell us will make a positive difference to their working lives
  • recruitment and retention to the varied and rewarding roles within health and care, supporting existing talent and attracting new
  • the best possible care for our patients and service users as a result of improving the working lives and experiences of our NHS people.

Many of you have already told us that the new core offer should reflect the thoughts and perspectives of all our people, be tangible, meaningful and genuinely impactful. This is a bold and ambitious goal, and we need your help and support to reach out to all our people. Where possible, we would encourage organisations to collate responses from their teams into a single submission.

Your feedback is hugely important to us, and will help us to shape our thinking in terms of priorities for action. We will be sharing our findings later in the year, in the meantime, please stay connected with our work through Twitter, by following #OurNHSPeople.

Please provide your feedback by Friday 8 November 2019 via this online portal. The portal will, however, remain open until the end of November to continue to collect your thoughts, views and experiences around this hugely important work.
