Bullying seems to be encouraged from the top down, senior management do not support or encourage staff. Lots of staff off with stress, HR do not know what they are doing and continue the bullying culture. I would say keep away from this Trust if you want to look after your mental health.

A typical day would start off with a number of tasks that need to be done. It would end with exactly the same number of tasks outstanding due to managers wanting other things to tight deadlines, changing the goalposts, crises in clinical areas which require immediate action, mandatory meetings or training set up on your behalf by managers etc. Next day or so managers will ask why your tasks have not been done! Managers have little understanding or interest in what your role entails or what demands are being placed on you by others only in what they want you to do for them.

Consequently there is a widening gap between staff and managers. This is a shame as there used to be a more collaborative culture but it's almost like they don't care if people leave now. Most enjoyable thing is going home!
Pros
Close to home, nice colleagues, nice patients
Cons
Long hours unpaid, highly pressured, no recognition or progression, not nice patients

Same location
Trained here, unfortunately, on many occasions, staffing levels prevent decent support for many pre-ceptee midwives and student midwives and all workforce alike.

There used to be (and still are) staff members that I learned so much from. Their experience and expertise were second to none.


Unimpressed with some policies and procedures.


Not always consulted by management regarding issues that affect all the people on the "shop floor".


Need more mental health first aiders and dedicated areas for mindfulness and escapism at work to ensure staff can really shut off on their breaks when required or possible.


If staff are looked after, the staff will ensure that everything else is all well and good, but at times, staff feel undervalued, not listened to and have low morale.


At other times - everyone pulls together and morale increases despite surrounding circumstances.

Lots of audio typing with additional admin duties.
A difficult working environment with poor management/team leadership. Most would rather not be there. Quite clicky. Patients usually OK though.Interesting subject matter. Parking and exit from site difficult.
