A good company to work for. I was only bank receptionist but I knew early on that there wouldn't be much opportunity to work any reasonable length of time as the permanent receptionist hardly took time off and they never trained me for the second receptionist role in the other department which they were supposed to.

There's a family feel here - the doctors are experts in their field and they are kind and compassionate with the patients. The consultants keep abreast with new technology and also with new pharmaceuticals. The residents are cared for by well trained and compassionate staff.

Training and development is provided for all employees to suit their needs and career progression. Regular team meetings with the head of department help to keep everyone informed of the department's success and developments. The estates department has built a great reputation across the society over the last few years and provides a service crucial to the need of our service users. It is an extremely rewarding job knowing that you are doing your bit to make the lives of people in need more comfortable and enjoyable.

I have spent in the company 11 years, learning a lot about epilepsy and challenging behaviour. Found every day rewarding and satisfying providing care to people with epilepsy and helping them in everyday challenges. I have been working with committed team of employees and management. It has been a true life changing experience.

Has had a lot of senior team management changes. Recent changes leading to redundancies resulting in shortage of staffing across the organisation. But seems to be money for trival things such as new air con system in senior management offices (allegedly) and security team (which no one sees aroud the organisation). Very poor communication and involvement between senior management and front line workers.
Culture of blame and lack of owning responsibility for mistakes or poor choices.

Poor moral overall in organisation!


Incentives for workers to work up a pay scale by undergoing trainings taken away/reduced dramatically.


However, front line workers generally are caring and passionate about providing good qulaity care for service users.
Pros
Front line workers caring and passionate about providing good care
Cons
Blame culture, lack of taking responsibility of own actions, Poor-to non career progression

: I have an open mind, a readiness to learn and improve; identified from a young age that learning is a life-long process. Teaching sports in primary schools has further taught me new things.

Check in with nurses to find out any issues that may of happened.
Complete temperature charts for fridges and freezers.

Work out how much food needs to be cooked for patients.

Check with the cleaners and notify them of any areas of concern.

Arrange any bed movements that need to happen.

Help with clerking in new patients and discharging others.

Serving lunch, placing orders.

The most enjoyable part of my job is making a difference to people.

The hardest part is when I can't help someone but I always try to get the answers or direct them to the correct person.
