The list is a celebration of NHS organisations that have worked hard at staff engagement and fostering an environment that staff enjoy working in.

Danny Mortimer, chief executive of NHS employers, said: “A long standing commitment to healthy workplaces characterises many of those featured on this list.”

The trust’s chief executive Professor Tricia Hart said: “I’m very proud to work for this organisation and at a time when we’re going through major change, transformation and having to make some difficult decisions, it is still so positive to be collectively recognised in this way.”

The overall list of 120 organisations was broken down into different categories of organisations.

These included 20 CCGs, 42 acute trusts, 16 specialist trusts, 11 community trusts and 31 mental health trusts.

The organisations were assessed on seven core areas – leadership and planning, corporate culture and communication, role satisfaction, work environment, relationship with supervisor, training, development and resources, employee engagement and satisfaction.
