Get ready for UNISON’s annual NHS staff survey

The survey aims to take a snapshot of life working in the NHS on a single day – and this year, it’s open to all health service staff

UNISON’s seventh annual NHS staffing survey takes place next week – and for the first time, it includes workers right across the health service, not just nursing staff.

The aim is to capture a snapshot of what it is like to work in the NHS on a typical day. This year, that day will be next Tuesday, 18 September.

The survey is titled How was it for you? We want to know if your day was exceptional or ordinary; the best – or the worst – ever, and how that affects your mental and physical wellbeing.

The survey is going out to all health members in the NHS – private and sub-contracted; nurses, ambulance staff, admin and clerical workers and more. Branches have received a poster to promote the survey (stock number 4001 in the online catalogue) – and if you want to join in and are not a UNISON member, there’s still time to join the union and take part.
