NHS Staff Survey 2020

The 2020 NHS Staff Survey results will be published at 9.30am on Thursday 11 March 2021.

The NHS has never before experienced a year like this one and all those involved in the NHS Staff Survey are very aware that 2020 has not been “business as usual” for the NHS workforce. However, it remains vital this year that we accurately measure and understand the experience of working in the NHS. By measuring staff experience in a consistent way to previous years, the 2020 NHS Staff Survey provides a unique opportunity to demonstrate the impact that the Covid-19 pandemic has had on staff experience.

So, the 2020 NHS Staff Survey has followed the same methodology and timings as in previous years, with many of the same questions being asked, in the same way. This allows us to maintain comparability of the data and allows NHS organisations to compare question responses and theme scores to life before Covid-19 in a way that will provide invaluable insight. Some changes have been made however, including the addition of some specific questions about the Covid-19 pandemic, in order to give a more in depth understanding of the impact that the pandemic has had on NHS staff.

The questionnaire and guidance documents for 2020 are available on the 'Survey Documents' tab.
