Challenging role with supportive collegues

Challenging fast paced roles working largely in high pressure environments. The different roles present differing pro and negative aspects with a common theme of working within a valued role within the NHS.

Not a good trust for rehabilitation services
Physiotherapist (Current Employee) –  Cambridge10 June 2016
Since CPFT took over community rehabilitation everything has been rushed into. There have been no proper staff consultation(called it consultation but none of the responses were heard to). The trust is very policy focused and less staff and patient friendly. Many well established staff were pushed to leave. There is no or very limited funding for even basic patient needs. Senior Management and HR are clueless with patient queries. Everything is chaos. Looks like our mental health colleagues are more well off(as they have been a MH service before taking therapy services over) . It is appalling that a NHS trust is gearing and using a more business like model. I do not enjoy my work anymore but I love my patients which keeps me going. I do not recommend this trust . Everything is a no apart from the fact that it is NHS so u get paid and the job security, of course.
Pros
Established mental health trust
Cons
No clue about therapy services Very policy focused not staff or patient friendly
