The UK government and health sector have steadily increased their support for international volunteering in recent years, and consistently emphasised its value to the UK as well as to developing country health systems. However, for NHS employers and managers to make consistent, informed decisions about international volunteering, they need robust evidence of whether and how it contributes to staff performance. To help build the evidence base across the NHS, please fill in this short, anonymous questionnaire once you have had your first appraisal/PDR/revalidation following your volunteering experience. It will take 5-10 minutes.
The information you send us will be stored on a database held by an HEE-approved partner and may be made available to wider partners and referred to in future published research on volunteering and appraisal. All information will be held in accordance with the statutory requirements of the Data Protection Act 1998, the Human Rights Act 1998 and Freedom of Information Act 2000. Any information contained in your response may be subject to publication or disclosure if requested under the Freedom of Information Act 2000.
Thank you for your time and feedback
