NHS People Pulse

Listening and responding to our NHS people is as important as ever as the response to COVID-19 continues to evolve.

The NHS People Pulse is a national online survey, developed for all NHS provider and commissioner organisations, to support local listening and engagement activities. Results will provide a regular national, regional and local view of employee experience and wellbeing.

The survey takes only five minutes to complete and asks employees how they are responding to the pressures during COVID-19 and recovery, including how supported, motivated or anxious they may feel, and what support would make the biggest difference to their experience at work at this time.

The feedback will inform local and national actions to improve the experiences of our people and patients.

NHS People Pulse has been running every two weeks from 1 July 2020. Based on feedback and engagement with participating organisations, the frequency changed to monthly from 23 September 2020. The availability of the survey was due to end on 31 January 2021 but has been extended for at least a further 12 months. The survey continues to allow us to explore various aspects of experience and sentiment of our NHS People.
