​We have some fantastic news to share with you. Back in 2016, the RNOH set itself a number of key targets around improving working culture including to be the best Trust to work at in the NHS. Well, we’re very pleased to say we have come top in several key staff experience measures in the annual NHS Staff Survey: 

  • Staff Engagement – best NHS Trust in England
  • Quality of care – the best acute specialist NHS Trust in England; the best NHS Trust in London; second best NHS Trust in England,
  • Health and Wellbeing – the best NHS Trust in London
  • Morale – the best NHS trust in London

Dominic Dodd, RNOH Chair, said: “These excellent scores are the result of the hard work of our staff and volunteers, their commitment and dedication to our patients, making sure they receive the very best care. It’s also testament to how everyone has supported each other, especially over this last very difficult year”.

Prof Paul Fish, RNOH interim CEO, has also welcomed these results: “The journey the RNOH has taken over the past five years has been extraordinary and inspiring. From the building and opening of the Stanmore Building to the responsiveness and support we provided to the wider NHS during the Coronavirus pandemic, at the heart of it all has been the staff and volunteers of the RNOH, the individuals and teams that represent its true spirit. These survey results are clear evidence of the care and devotion we not only have for our patients, but for each other. I’ve never been more proud to be a member of the RNOH family.”

On behalf of the RNOH, we want to thank each and every one of our staff for their efforts – it’s each of them that makes working here so special. However, we are not complacent and we know that we don’t get it right for every colleague every day and so, while we enjoy this moment, we will also continue our work to maintain our position as the best place to work in the NHS, for everyone every day.
