A national survey of staff working for the NHS has highlighted the primary care trust in Brighton and Hove as top of the league for staff training and development. The organisation also scores well for job satisfaction and work life balance. Strong team working and good line management contribute to this positive view.
Chief Executive Darren Grayson said:
“We are really pleased with this result and determined to build on it over the next year. We have a great team here and pride ourselves on ensuring all staff get opportunities to develop their skills and experience. At a time of significant change throughout the NHS, our staff are feeling work pressure and we need to make sure we continue to support staff in maintaining a balance between work and non-working life.”
Loraine Welch who works as an administrator at the PCT said:
“I really enjoy the friendly atmosphere here – people work well together and get things done. I wanted a job that mattered and even when my work here doesn’t directly involve patients, I can see the benefits for local people in what I do.”
