Enjoyable working with the patients and a great staff team on the ward Worked extra hours constantly due to short staff and incidents Pulled off training due to short staff Higher up management don’t follow up on surveys
Senior Support Worker (Current Employee) – Middleton St. George – 21 November 2017
Middleton st george darlington
Every other week staff walk and most are desperate to leave.
Poor training & support, 1 female left to work nightshifts without support in the building in a high-risk maximum security facility that service users escape.
If you take a break you will get your stats down scored!! They say its your choice !!! Blackmail comes to mind. Desperate calls from suicidal people that we have no safeguarding training!! People are taking their own lifes on the phone and afterwards .....We have no training to deal with this!! Profit over service users and staff.
Hr ....Listen .....Need to invest at every level,
Training More staff Staff retention not turn over Internal mental health support for stressed staff Callers/ service user safeguarding (suicide) Stop cutting wages and staff immediately Find management who have the experience at this level and be compassionate when required. Dont let females work alone on nightshifts.

Nurse (Current Employee) – Cheadle, Cheshire – 8 November 2017
Used to be a good place to work but the business aspect has taken over and at time the care aspect takes a back seat. There is a lot of pressure to get bums on beds rather than focus on whether this is the best place for the patient.
Support Worker (Former Employee) – Hove, East Sussex – 4 November 2017
I worked at a service in hove. The management have no regard for their staff and lack basic people skills and are unkept and scruffy . All they are concerned with is filling beds , And do not take into consideration suitability of the home , safety for other residents and staff.
The staff turnover is very high and moral low . I would not recommend this company to anyone .
Support Worker/Carer (Former Employee) – Uxbridge – 28 October 2017
During my time time here, was managed terribly by the company. Management work and problems were always delegated to the workers, a group of favored were always made apparent through their lack of work, personal number exchange with the manager, management made a hard work environment if you were not apart of the favored group. Manager often pretended took holidays and left all the problems to the work team that they should of dealt with as it is their job role and therefore took the credit for it upon return, whenever problems did occur neither local management nor on call management would ever help including not answering work phone during an emergency.
Care Assistant (Former Employee) – Chesterfield – 10 October 2017
Staff work very hard and 9/10 times short staffed. The housekeepers do an excellent job on a daily basis, its just a shame management are only interested in making money and not the welfare of the staff.
Poor wages for the work that you do.
I highly recommend NOT to work for this company!!!
The job can be hard but also rewarding. But the management are quick to pull you up on thing which haven't been done or aren't done correctly with no acknowledgement of how difficult it has been on the ward. There's a blame culture and the management will not admit when it's wrong! The team is so demoralised from being beaten down that staff are leaving in their droves. It was a nice place to work despite being very poorly paid but not any more
Health Care Assistant (Current Employee) – Middleton St. George – 29 September 2017
Since the priory took over affinity health care the have cut bonus's cut the staff all for profit and put employees in danger due to the staffing ladders , No support from management and I feel it is a very very sexist environment to be in
Senior Support Worker (Former Employee) – Belfast, County Antrim – 26 September 2017
Shocking place to work, Management hang you out to dry. No resident should be placed within this facility as they are not suited. Staff are not trained to deal with the residents complex behaviours. Stay away from this company.
Mental Health Support Worker (Former Employee) – Edgbaston, West Midlands – 19 September 2017
I went for a interview for priory westbourne in edgbaston, i completed the first stages and was invited to meet some of the residents which i could not attend when they asked as i was on holiday! So I basically got told I couldn't go any further with my application(even though i had passed interview and assessments) This really annoyed me as its not professional at all. Once i was back from my holiday they got in touch with me asking me to go in and meet residents which i did... i got asked a number of questions which i aswered, i then was told i would be contacted later that day.. ive not heard off them since(which was around 2months ago) .. Fair enough if i did not pass this stage but i find it ever so frustrating and rude they did not get in touch to tell me this like they said they would! Would not recommend working for this sham of a company because quite frankly they have zero respect for any of their staff or people that take up their own time going to interviews.
Senior Care Assistant (Former Employee) – Bere Alston, Devon – 5 September 2017
Good place to work ever changing to meet specific autism needs. At times very challenging ,support always on hand a continual learning curve ,one of the biggest lessons I learnt was how to remain calm to be able to help a student in crisis and to be a role model providing stability and trust.
Director of Clinical Services (Former Employee) – Hemel Hempstead, Hertfordshire – 29 August 2017
The hospital, staff and environment made it a very pleasing place to work. Though I would have felt a greater part of the service and its delivery if I could have had more time to spend with the patients and the staff. To be able to hear their views and concerns, then act upon them, giving them a greater voice and input into the service they were receiving and working in.
