Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust is named as one of the best places to work in 2015

Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust has been named as one of the Health Service Journal’s (HSJ) best places to work in 2015.

The Trust is one of 40 trusts included in the acute trust category. The list is a celebration of NHS organisations that have worked hard to promote great staff engagement and create an environment where people can enjoy their work.

The list has been compiled using data from the latest NHS staff survey with a focus on seven core areas: leadership and planning, corporate culture and communication, role satisfaction, work environment, relationship with supervisor, training, development and resources, employee engagement and satisfaction.

The Trust’s national staff survey, completed between September and December 2014, reported that the Trust's engagement score of 3.76 was above (better than) average when compared with trusts of a similar type. The engagement score is calculated from three key questions; staff ability to contribute towards improvements at work, staff recommendation of the Trust as a place to work or receive treatment and staff motivation at work.

Karen Charman, director of people and organisational development said:

 “We are very proud to have been included in the HSJ’s best places to work 2015.

“Over the past few years the Trust has committed to working hard to become a place of work where staff members feel valued and listened to. Our inclusion on this list is a testament to that commitment.”

Areas in which the Trust rated above average include:


  • staff agreeing that feedback from patients/service users is used to make informed decisions in their directorate/department
  • staff reporting good communication between senior management and staff
  • staff agreeing that they would feel secure raising concerns about clinical practice
  • staff having well-structured appraisals in last 12 month
