The Mid Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust is proud to announce that it has been officially accredited as an Investor in People (IIP). This is a world-recognised standard, which assesses whether organisations have effective practices in place according to a framework of indicators common to organisations performing highly in their management of people.
The Mid Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust has been described by IIP as a ‘changed organisation’, which is placing great emphasis on looking after and supporting staff and is serious about changing culture so that staff feel respected, valued and empowered.
Martin Barkley, Chief Executive at The Mid Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust, said:
“I am delighted to receive this accreditation as it gives independent verification of all that we are doing to make Mid Yorkshire a great place to work. It is thanks to the hard work, commitment and dedication of our staff that this has been possible, and I am hugely proud of them.
“Of course, there is always more to do to ensure consistency across all parts of the Trust and we remain focused on continuing to improve the practices we have in place. But we know that the more supported our staff are, the better the patient care we provide, so we hope this will be welcome news not just to our existing staff, but to our patients and our community as well as helping attract more NHS staff to choose to come and work at Mid Yorkshire.”
