Supportive team
Retired (Former Employee) –  Poole, Dorset9 October 2018
Managers are Stressed and some uncaring and do not support staff all they are concerned about are rating and looking good for the CQC and not patient staff caring
Staff at ground level are caring hard working and very supportive of each other and are often under pressure to meet targets and deal with difficult clients and often go above and beyond often and getting no thanks for what they do
Pros
Colleges support pay pensions
Cons
Not feeling support or valued and will dismiss you at a drop of a hat

Interesting and rewarding
CAMHS Support Worker (Current Employee) –  Bournemouth21 August 2017
I love my job but I am aware and can feel the strains on the NHS and in particular CAMHS. My team are amazing at their jobs and very supportive and the clients that are in the system receive great care but unfortunately the waiting times are so long that people loose faith before they begin treatment.

A Trust going places.
Locality Manager (Former Employee) –  Poole11 May 2017
A forward thinking organisation striving to change and take healthcare into a new place. Reasonably sound director team, but very lean. Very good staff engagement and communication. Some investment is needed in middle management.
