I worked within the Trust for 13 years and working 2 people's jobs for my last 6 years, constantly asking for help and being ignored by senior management even though I set up new pre-op systems that are still in place, then the death of my Mum just tipped me over the edge and I had a breakdown. If you suck up to senior management your face will fit, if you don't like I didn't you will be systematically pushed out, I was very proud to work for the NHS but they broke me.
