Meanwhile more than one in ten (12%) NHS staff do not feel appreciated for the hard work that they do throughout the year, whilst more than a quarter (28%) do not feel they are involved in decisions about the health service.
Scottish Labour’s Shadow Cabinet Secretary for Health, Monica Lennon MSP, said:
“It is worrying that only around a third of NHS staff think performance is being managed well. This chimes with what health service workers tell me about inadequate investment in the training and development at all levels.
“This is a direct reflection on the SNP government’s mismanagement of our health service after more than a decade of complacency.
“Our NHS staff are the backbone of the organisation, it is them who save and transform lives for the better everyday.
“That is why it is concerning to read one in every 10 workers do not feel appreciated for what they do whilst more than quarter do not feel involved in decisions about the NHS.
“The Health Secretary cannot sugarcoat these findings. “Jeane Freeman must listen to NHS staff and give our health service the resources that patients and workers deserve.”
