Don't lower your professional standards to work here
Health Practitioner (Former Employee) – Bournemouth – 8 February 2019
You are lured in by the extensive training which bears no resemblance to reality as once you are in post, you will be expected to assess 4 people per day irrelevant of complexity, condition or emotional state. If you don't achieve this, you will be performance managed. Considering an assessment can take an hour and an hour to write up - 8 hours per day without tea and loo breaks is the norm.
If you can speed type, you will do better
Managers are target driven and incentivised to make you work quicker and so have no empathy or understanding of your work load.
Lunch breaks don't happen as you will have someone to assess.
Your assessments are then audited by remote workers who may vary in opinion and you will generally spend your own time correcting these (on top of your 4 assessments)
You will never feel any sense of achievement and will lose your skills and self worth.
It is stressful, demoralising and a poor use of your skills. Please don't consider this post. I have several lovely colleagues on mental health medication because of this.
Disrespectful mangers, work life balance, poor staff welfare, waste of public money
