A Rotherham, Doncaster and Scunthorpe health trust is simply one of the best when it comes to equality, diversity and inclusion … and above average in six other categories in this year’s NHS staff survey.

Kathryn Singh, Chief Executive, said: “I want to thank all of our colleagues who took part in the survey. It’s excellent to see that we are ranking above average in several categories and the best in one.

“I believe the Trust is a great place to work and I’m pleased colleagues have given us these fabulous results.

A big achievement for a Doncaster Trust.

“As always, I want to thank our colleagues for all that they do at RDaSH especially during the last 12 months where they have all gone over and above during the Coronavirus outbreak. The hard work they do is always appreciated, not only by myself, the Board of Directors and the Executive Management Team but by the patients we care for, as well as their families and carers.”

It’s also the second year running that Rotherham Doncaster and South Humber NHS Foundation Trust (RDaSH) topped the bill for equality, diversity and inclusion, for which the Trust was also a finalist in the Health Service Journal NHS Workplace Race Equality Awards.

Colleagues who took part in the survey gave the Trust a big thumbs up and put the organisation above average when it comes to:Health and Well being, Morale, Quality of Care, Two categories of Safe Environment and Safety Culture.

The only category the health trust was just below average in is team working – but was only 0.1% lower than the average scores and is probably due to a lot of colleagues working remotely due to the Coronavirus outbreak.
