An NHS organisation that runs community health services in Ely, Doddington and Wisbech has been rated among the best to work for in England.  

The national NHS staff survey results were published last week, and 75 per cent of staff at the Cambridgeshire Community Services NHS Trust would recommend their place of work.  

This is compared to a national average of 61.1 per cent.  

It was also the best performing community trust nationally in six areas 

They are: “We are compassionate and inclusive”, “We each have a voice that counts”, “We work flexibly”, “We are a team”, “Staff engagement” and “Morale”.

The Cambridgeshire Community NHS Trust also scored well above average in the areas of "We are recognised and rewarded” and “We are always learning”.  

Anita Pisani, Deputy Chief Executive at CCS, said: “It truly shines through how compassionate, inclusive, and supportive we are of each other.  

“We’re incredibly proud of everything we’ve achieved together and are committed to continuing to develop and improve.” 

The Cambridgeshire Community Services NHS Trust runs the Princess of Wales Hospital, in Ely, as well as services at the Doddington Community Hub and North Cambs Hospital, in Wisbech.   

Its portfolio includes Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Children and Young People’s Services, sexual health, physiotherapy and specialist dental services.

To coincide with this, the trust launched a new podcast putting the spotlight on NHS leadership and culture and how they impact staff and patient care. 

It will be hosted by Matthew Winn, the chief executive of CCS and Norfolk Community Health and Care NHS Trust. 

Guests are NHS leaders with a history of developing positive cultures, as demonstrated by their organisation’s strong staff survey results, and those working to rebuild cultures in challenging circumstances.
