NHS Staff Survey Results – 2018

Thank you to all organisations who participated in the 2018 NHS Staff Survey. This year, the survey went out to over 1.1million staff across more than 300 NHS organisations in England.

Staff were eligible to take part if they were employed directly by an NHS organisation on 1st September 2018. The number of staff members who took part in the survey between October and December 2018, via either a postal or online questionnaire, was 497,117. This constituted an overall response rate of 46% for the 2018 Staff Survey.

This website allows users to view national and local results from the survey through a series of interactive dashboards. As a number of reporting outputs have undergone major revisions this year, we encourage users to provide feedback on the design of the website, to report any issues they find with the site, and to let us know what they would like to see available on the website for future surveys. Feedback can be sent to nhsstaffsurvey@surveycoordination.com.

For help with interpreting the data, please refer to the ‘Technical document’ – you can find a link to this in the ‘Supporting documents’ menu on the left. For a brief overview of the survey and the reporting outputs available, please refer to the ‘Basic guide’ which is also linked to the left.
