Caring for those who Care Second Survey

Released on - 27/05/2020

Caring for those who Care Second Survey

Committed to Caring for those who Care

At the end of last year we launched our Caring for those who Care Campaign. The campaign looks at how best to improve negative cultures within the operating theatre as well as raising awareness of the impact on patient safety.  As part of the campaign, we carried out a survey with the aim of improving our understanding of the issues you face at work. We received nearly 800 responses with an alarming 86% of responders said they felt concerned about staff wellbeing and the effect it’s having on patient safety. The results indicated that bullying is one of the major factors raising concerns.

Please help us help you by completing our NEW anonymous survey.

To further understand the challenges faced by those working within the operating theatre and associated areas we have launched a second survey. This survey aims to obtain an in depth understanding of the issues relating to bullying that were raised in the first survey.

As the survey is anonymous it allows you to provide honest answers. We completely respect your privacy, so we’ll never ask you to disclose your name, contact details or place of work.

By completing these questions, you are consenting to the answers being used anonymously.

Access the survey here.

As a result of the findings from our first survey, we have recently introduced a new member benefit in partnership with Big White Wall (BWW). We felt it was more important than ever to provide you with a resource to help you manage your wellbeing and mental health concerns. BWW is a multi-award-winning digital mental health and wellbeing service designed to help you get support, take control and feel better. It provides anonymous, safe 24/7 peer and professional support (with trained healthcare professionals online at all times), a supportive community and a range of information and wellbeing tools. You can speak to someone who understands what you’re going through, anytime and anywhere.
