Commenting on some of the key results Bradley told Newry Times, “Although there is much in the results of the survey which is good and shows improvement – it is good to learn that 87% of staff feel that they are satisfied with the quality of care they give to patients and service users and that 90% feel their role makes a difference to patients and service users. “However there are still some areas which the Trust needs to work on to bring about the necessary improvement. “It is a cause of concern that a considerable number of hard working staff are doing up to 5 additional unpaid hours per week and only 61% of staff are dissatisfied with the extent to which the Trust values their work. “62% of staff believe that there are not enough staff employed by the Trust for them to do their work properly while 65% think that they do not get clear feedback about how well they are doing their job. “It is worrying too that 72% of staff believe that communication between staff and Senior Management is effective. Bradley added, “There is clearly room for improvement in the various areas indicated by these statistics and I intend to meet senior management in the Trust in order to hear how the Trust intends to deal with these important issues.”
