I've received a reminder email, is it really anonymous?

NHS Staff Survey 2018 Logo

There is still time for you to complete your staff survey if you have not done so already.   

Many of us are motivated to complain about something more quickly than say how good you feel about your role. If you feel proud to be part of #WeAreEEAST, this is your opportunity to say so, don’t waste it. Equally, if you are not, you can also say so. It only takes a few minutes but your feedback is very important.

Responses to this survey are strictly confidential. No one from the trust will see your completed survey or be able to identify individual responses.

I’ve received a reminder email, is it really anonymous?
You have been given a unique identification (ID) number so that your name and work contact details are not on the questionnaire. The Trust does not have access to the questionnaires or to any linked personal data.

Quality Health use the ID numbers to ensure that reminders are only sent to staff who have not returned a questionnaire. As staff complete questionnaires directly to Quality Health, not the trust, there is no way that anyone can link data with a particular ID number or individual.

Results are only reported to the trust in summary form and in such a way it is impossible to identify an individuals responses.

It is illegal for Quality Health to give personal data about the views of staff to EEAST; it’s as simple as that. It would break GDPR regulations, and would be in breach of their contractual obligations as an approved contractor.
