Welcome to East Lancashire Hospitals NHS Trust
When you walk through the door, one of the first things you’ll notice is that the organisation is full of talented people. Not just in the fields of medicine, nursing or diagnostics but in every part of the organisation. Professional and committed people who are all working together in an open and supportive culture.
We don’t just look at you for who you are now; we look at you for who you could be in the future. We take training seriously, and encourage you to do the same. We want staff to develop their capabilities to the full with a range of learning and development opportunities.
To enable the Trust and its employees to exceed expectations and to achieve corporate and service aims and objectives, we need to recruit, develop and retain skilled and motivated people through effective people management and development, leading to a high performance culture.
In November 2018, the Trust received a prestigious HSJ award for ‘Creating a Supportive Staff Culture’. This demonstrated positive culture change is happening throughout the organisation, and is much more than an ‘initiative’, it is the way we do things at ELHT. Engage to Make a Difference has enabled everyone at ELHT to play their part in the continually improvement of the Trust. And what’s more our National Staff Survey results improve each year. We have above average scores for engagement, and are now in the top 20 percent of organisations on 16 key measures of staff satisfaction. Our own surveys have similar findings – 81 per cent of staff would now recommend the organisation for care and treatment, and 74 per cent recommend it as a place to work.
