    [Excerpt from publisher] In October 2006, a total of 240,580 staff in the NHS were asked about their views and experiences of working for the NHS in England in the fourth annual survey of NHS staff. The survey is believed to be the largest annual staff survey in the world and this year 128,328 NHS employees took part, representing 53.6%. PCTs who were reconfigured in October 2006 were not required to participate in this year's survey and we will not use the data from the 2006 staff survey to assess these PCTs in the 2006/2007 annual health check. The 2006 survey provides information on the attitudes and experiences of staff in the NHS and can be used to improve working conditions and practices in healthcare services and therefore the quality of care provided to patients. All trusts have received their own survey results, along with detailed information about how these compare with other trusts. The results from this survey help to meet two of the Commission's objectives: (1)to provide local NHS trusts with information to improve the working conditions and experiences of their staff (2) to provide results for deriving measures of the performance of NHS trusts for use in the Healthcare Commission's annual health check
