Job satisfaction high for mental health staff

The annual survey of NHS staff by the Healthcare Commission has found that, despite having a high chance of being beaten up on the job, mental health staff have one of the highest levels of job satisfaction (73%) in the NHS, second only to primary care staff (75%). 22% had experienced physical and verbal violence from service users - the same level as last year - and 34% had experienced bullying and verbal abuse. However only 10% had suffered from work-related stress or injuries - 4% down on last year. You can read more about the Healthcare Commission's survey at
