Respect the HCA's. They are not donkeys, stupid or slaves. They work hard and do the jobs others hate. Some RMNs in the wards are difficult to work with, as there is a form of bullying and obvious favouritism towards HCAs they work with. There are long term staff who treat new or temp staff with no respect or decency. This needs to stop and be recognised. When good staff get driven away through ill treatment and bad attitude from CPFT to other better jobs, the only people who suffer are the bullies themselves (as they find themselves mostly likely understaffed) and of course the patients. Where is the logic in that? People need to think more with their brains and push aside the big ego. Bullying stops in the school playground. Theres few things more pitiful than an overgrown 'professional' adult behaving arrogant towards other colleagues of any hierarchy.

Answered

Probably the most positive aspect of my dealings with them

Answered

In one word; wretched. I would not wish working there on my worst enemy. Behaviours are accepted, such as bullying and harassment, that no other organisation would put up with. I was subjected to them and I saw other people subjected to them and management was powerless to intervene due to complete lack of organisational support

Answered

Staff bullying those in lower ranks. Or longer term staff bullying new or temporary staff. Being undermined and targeted over trivial things (any excuse for the bully to keep bullying). Very off-putting, pitiful and disgraceful to see and be subjected to being treated badly by certain so called 'adult' colleagues & 'professionals' who choose to behave this way. Sometimes you're a scapegoat because they are under pressure themselves but thats no excuse for this harmful and toxic behaviour and it needs to be recognised, stopped and addressed or staffing issues will remain a problem. I don't believe in those who say whats the point, nothing gets done. Its all about not being a victim and complaining to the right person and/or getting seeking legal advice.
