Worked for over a year in the Trust, as a therapist.

Support was lacking, expectations were incredibly high, and accountability for the senior members of staff was non existent.


Very poor experience.

Highly bureaucratic and discriminatory work place where skills and talent is recognised only through the eyes of colour, race and religion. I wouldn't recommend this organisation to any sincere healthcare employee.

Higher management non transparent with matters directly affecting their workforce. De-banding and relocating staff to bases miles away from original work bases. Staff feel undervalued and let down by seemingly inept senior management. Whenever possible not paying redundancy using 'reasonable' requests as basis.
Pros
none
Cons
staff reductions, workloads increasing, de-bandings, poor pay

As part of the district nursing service I could see how hard the nurses work and how dedicated they are. The service is considerably understaffed, and at times at breaking point.
