The mission statement is noble, many volunteers are wonderful and hard working people, but egotists get promoted fast, even if they never treat a patient.
If you spend more than a year with SJA you will find that....
Whistleblowing goes nowhere.
The Safegaurding system, including child prot, doesn’t work.
Regional offices never investigate bullying.
Regional offices will lie to anyone, including NHQ and even MPs,
Managers can say what they like about volunteers, even when it amounts to gaslighting,
If anyone with pips (aka bird-**** on their shoulder does get investigated it will either be by their mates or themselves.
No-one with crowns on their shoulder need ever be concerned by the prospect of an investigation.
NHQ staff with six figure salaries are ostriches, volunteers pay their wages.
Expect to find a few who’ve been with the organisation ten-fifteen years Sitting quietly, praying that the organisation will return to sanity.
