Fantastic forward thinking trust
Mental Health Nurse (Current Employee) –  Maidstone, Kent20 March 2018
If you want to work in an innovative and progressive work place, then this is for you. If you’re willing to work hard for the benefit of service users then it’s a fantastic place to work. It won’t tolerate poor practice, laziness or bad attitudes but if you have a good heart with integrity then I couldn’t recommend it more!!
Pros
Innovative and always striving to improve
Cons
None

great company to work for
Health Care Assistant (Former Employee) –  Canterbury, Kent17 February 2018
a typical day at work would be assisting nurses and staff nurses in provide care, independence, 1 to 1 talks, medicines, food and socializing to help patients regain confidence and trust as well as information in what they could do to have a better life after they leave hospital
management worked well, some days it was hard due to managers being away for training or meetings but as a staff team we managed well and was able to spread the work load evenly and sufficiently
the most enjoyable part of the job is seeing patients completely turn their life around and maintain a great life after their rehabilitation

Difficult but generally good
Community Psychiatric Nurse (Current Employee) –  Canterbury1 February 2018
Within healthcare there are multiple challenges. Within this trust there is a definite requirement for balance between management and good practices. At times it can feel that there is an imbalance but this feeds into politics. The trust as a whole functions well and is supportive to staff during difficult periods.

Can be stressful
Cleaner (Former Employee) –  Dartford, Kent24 January 2018
I worked for kmpt at Littlebrook hospital in Dartford.
Cleaning for mental health patients can be stressful and some wards were more stressful than others.
Staff generally very nice but facilities management pretty hopeless and the wards were well kept mainly due to hard work of the cleaners.
Pros
Good benefits
Cons
Sometime dangerous patients

Awful management
Administrator (Former Employee) –  Rochester, Kent23 November 2017
Ended up leaving due to poor management. Even put in complaint for it to be shunned and dismissed never felt so let down and under valued in a job. Management seem to stick together and not worry about staff complaints no matter that they have you in tears
