The NHS Next Stage Review and the NHS Constitution have brought a renewed focus on the NHS as an employer. The latter includes four pledges to staff that set out, for the first time, what the NHS expects from its staff and what staff can expect from the NHS. They are part of the commitment of the NHS to being a good employer and helping staff feel valued.
Pledge 1: To provide all staff with clear roles and responsibilities and rewarding jobs for teams and individuals that make a difference to patients, their families and carers, and to communities.
Pledge 2: To provide all staff with personal development plans, access to appropriate training for their jobs and the support of line management to succeed.
Pledge 3: To provide support and opportunities for staff to maintain their health, well being and safety.
Pledge 4: To engage staff in decisions that affect them and the services they provide individually, through representative organisations and through local partnership working arrangements. All staff will be empowered to put forward better ways of delivering better and safer services for patients and their families.
