Half of all staff score 'Strive and Celebrate' for feeling appreciated, however the score of 70 is 4 points lower than in iMatter 2019
Across the staff groupings there is considerable variation in the extent to which staff feel appreciated for the work they do, particularly across NHSScotland staff groupings. Those in NHSS Ambulance Services feel least appreciated of all staff groupings.
Senior Managers both in NHSScotland and Local Authorities are most likely to feel appreciated, scoring considerably higher than all other staff groupings.
Many stories highlight the role of the community in supporting Health and Social Care staff and three are illustrated below:
Maria is a Spanish nurse who talks openly about the challenges of her role. She explains how her cycle to and from work is part of her coping strategy. Maria found great comfort and support from the public show of support for Health and Social Care staff through the ‘Thursday Clap’
Her story is told in this film
When a smile, a cuppa and a space to breathe is just what’s needed

Many of the Staff Experience Stories share a sense of community, through volunteers, corporate support and the wider public, both in terms of help provided to Health and Social Care and through staff giving back. Two examples of this come from NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde celebrating the work of NHS Volunteers and the Land's End to John O'Groats trip to raise funds for the Glasgow Association of Mental Health.
Volunteer Guard of Honour
Staff at Glasgow Royal Infirmary, Queen Elizabeth University Hospital, and Royal Alexandra Hospital lined up in traditional fashion to celebrate the hard work and dedication of volunteers who have worked across the service in a variety of roles including:
- Staffing the Give and Go drop off points, which enabled friends and relatives to drop of essential personal items to patients during visiting restrictions. To date the team has delivered more than 12,000 parcels across sites, clocking up 3,000 hours of volunteer time.
- Welcoming staff, patients and visitors and signposting appropriately while ensuring everyone entering a hospital site used hand sanitiser.
- Distributing PPE to staff, patients and visitors throughout the pandemic.
- Distributing the many donations which flooded in from the public and from businesses
