This article reports changes in mindset and attitudes of a cohort of 798 NHS managers in relation to the implementation of a new NHS trust-wide performance appraisal system. This was measured through two methods: the statistical analysis of data collected before and after an intensive training/orientation intervention by means of χ2 tests; and a corpus linguistic analysis of word associations and text comments that is novel to the literature.
