This National Report provides an overview of the results of the 2014 NHSScotland Staff Survey.
Each NHS Board in Scotland must operate within the NHSScotland Governance Framework. Staff Governance is a key and integral part of this Framework and focuses on how NHSScotland staff are managed and feel they are managed.
The Staff Governance Standard requires all Boards to demonstrate that staff are:
1. well informed;
2. appropriately trained and developed;
3. involved in decisions;
4. treated fairly and consistently, with dignity and respect, in an environment where diversity is valued; and
5. provided with a continuously improving and safe working environment, promoting the health and wellbeing of staff, patients and the wider community.
The results presented in this report are set out according to these five elements of the Standard, along with findings relating to the overall experience of working for NHSScotland.
