I have worked for newton lodge going on 13years this has been a very satisfying job but until recent years the job has become more demanding also staffing levels always low hours cannot be condensed down to shorter working week as they haven’t enough staff to facilitate this which would make a lot better for my family life

I started as a Phlebotomist and advanced to a HCA within a year.
I left to try another career and have regretted this ever since.

I'd go back tomorrow if things in my life hadn't changed so much.

Management were always available to listen to issues.

I hope to return someday.

Stresful enviroment never enough staff for the amount of work that needs to be done
Long hours


Staff lovely and care for clients wellbeing.

most work as a team but I can say the Trust don't care about their employees wellbeing your just a number .

Once you reach a time where you may struggle with your own health issues they don't care
Pros
None

Worked for SWYFT for quite some time but eventually I had to get out.

The majority of management diabolical, really did not care about what you had to put up with. Some management quite abusive at times.


Some members of staff (on all levels) working themselves into an early grave whilst others shamelessly take the opportunity to do as little as possible (and get away with it due to management turning a blind eye).


Workloads not always shared out equally.


Witnessed bullying in more than one team.


Shame because many members of staff were really great people but it only takes a few bad eggs to spoil the whole environment.


Procedures changed regularly but not communicated to all staff, therefore some staff getting reprimanded due to those higher up not communicating effectively.


Some staff on lower pay bands than colleagues doing the same roles.


Not a good experience at all.
Pros
none

The majority of the staff are hardworking and friendly and trying to provide a level of care in difficult situations. The main problem is management do not listen to their workforce. I know money for the NHS is tight but they tell us there is no money available for extra staff and we have to "find time" to do the extra work of the missing colleagues but in my opinion feel they waste money on stupid things - definitely too many meetings.
Cons
Over worked and under staffed

Absolutely fabulous place to work, but very limited in job progression and not a lot of direct involvement from higher management tiers. A very diverse albeit small team

The role was varied and required working with professionals as well as members of the public. The NHS is a good employer with supportive colleagues and parking included which is always a bonus.

Professional people, although quite slow at adapting to changes and struggles with 'forward thinking!' As do most nhs organisations.
Massive, complex organisation.

South West Yorkshire Trust has been my employer for a number of years, I work with a great team. Currently the pressures on the NHS are preventing us from giving the service our patients have a right to expect.
Pros
Great team

Poor management

I was made ill by my job here because when staff leave they don't replace them instead you are expected to as my manager put it "shut up, put up & get on with it" at one stage I was doing my job as well as 2 others they didn't replace all for the same money.
My manager had no idea what I did or how difficult my working day was, my manager didn't even get in touch unless they wanted something. When you complain they tell you to get on with it, when you get ill they say you never told them there were problems!!!! I had to keep every email I sent to my manager as they continually lied & made excuses.

The clients were the best thing about my working day, they were what kept me in a horrible job for such a long time.

You never see management, they never keep you up to date with changes & even when you are off sick with doctors letters, ring, email & visit you at home until they have bullied you into a return to work at which point all the changes they promised never happen.
Cons
Uncaring trust for both staff & clients

A very busy fast pace office, with lots to do!!, alot of multi tasking. A great team. The hardest part was remembering names and unit numbers of children so that it can be accurately inputted onto the system. Did not have one enjoyable part i enjoyed the majority of the work given. I achieved a large knowledge of Speech & Language Therapy.
