We are committed to ensuring all staff participate in a high-quality annual appraisal. This plays a vital role in helping everyone understand the contribution they make and the importance of their role within the Trust. 

Through appraisal, you support achievement of the Trust’s objectives and are critical to the effectiveness and quality of the services we provide.

The provision of perfect care within Mersey Care depends on everyone having a well-structured appraisal.

As we support teams to plan recovery following the Covid-19 pandemic, this year, appraisals are more important than ever to capture future training requirements for development and wellbeing. 

For 2021, the Trust compliance target is for 90 per cent of staff to have completed an appraisal with their manager or nominated appraiser between 1 July and 31 December.

During 2021, we have two appraisal systems in operation – PACE Lite and My PDR (former North West Boroughs staff).
