Staff level concerns for NHS workers

FEWER than a third of NHS workers in Scotland believe there are enough staff for them to do their job properly, a major new survey has revealed.

This year's NHS Scotland staff survey found 31% agreed staffing levels were high enough, although this was up 3% from the last time the survey was done three years ago.

Just over half (55%) of the workers questioned agreed that care of patients and ­other service users was the top priority of the health board they worked for - down 8% from the 2010 survey.

But only 50% of NHS staff would recommend their health board to others as a good place work.

A total of 44,389 NHS Scotland employees completed the survey.
