Unfortunately run by narrow minded people who probably have no idea of the day to day concerns of the children and their family's Total disregard for staff, the harder you work to try and make a difference the more is added and less is available to the children.

I worked as a manager ( band 7 ) and was initially left alone to do my jobb , worked closely with my supervisor / consultant ( we had worked together in another organisation ) and this was rewarding. However we were a threat to management as they did not understand our strategy. This resulted jn the unit being " scapegoated " within the organisation, not a good outfit ti work for. Suffice to say other managers outside of the unit recognised the process confirming the "scapegoating" I would not work for CPFT again
I found this position in particular challenging yet rewarding, I have been able to develop and learn throughout my employment with CPFT. I would recommend this Trust as a great place to work and feel that management have actively listened to any concerns I have raised. I am actively encouraged to attend various training courses that will contribute to my professional development. I feel this job has given me the tools to progress in my administrative career. The staff are always friendly/welcoming.

Victimisation Bullying and harrasment takes place, staff are stressed management do not care, HR are of no use and are very biased. Nepotism throughout and family and friends employed with no experience, very unfair interview processes. No communication and adults and treated like children. The Trust has gone downhill, they need to look at staff surveys and actually do something about it and get rid of a lot of management.
Awful organisation, honestly cannot say a single positive thing about working for the CCG. Difficult to imagine a more demotivating and miserable working environment, I hated every minute of every day there.
Terrible work environment and atmosphere, nothing works as it should be it facilities, equipment or processes, everything is being cut, nobody cuts through with any organisational clout or decision making
providing care, assessments and education to patients in their own homes. I have improved my communication skills. Teamwork is essential in community setting. I enjoy talking and giving care to the elderly, in some cases having a visit form a nurse is the highlight of their day, so I try and and make it worthwhile. I enjoy working in the community as it enables the housebound patients to receive high quality care in their own environment.. The hardest part of the job is when you find a patient poorly needing extra care, however it quite rewarding that you will be able to lease with other members of the MDT team for individualised care. The travelling times between patients gives me time to reflect which is a fundamental aspect in nursing.
giving personalised care in the comfort of a patients home
traffic can be a challenge during busy times.
I have worked as an RMN for 20+ years in a number of geographical locations. This is the worst Trust I have worked for. Culture appears to be to work the staff into the ground, pile more work on them, staff leaving all the time, don't recruit quickly enough and so the few staff that are left go off sick because of stress. The managers couldn't be any more disinterested in staff stress if they tried. CPFT is Totally focused on targets and business model - pleasing the commissioners is all that matters, sod the patients or the poor staff. Service Managers and Team Managers pretend to listen to staff but are never proactive with information and dont speak up and support staff when patients complain or staff ask for help because of overworking. It is a shame CPFT are so vast and geographically speaking NHS employment options are limited if you are an RMN and live in Cambridgeshire. If you have a choice don't work for CPFT mental health directorate.
Annual leave 33 days - long service
Poor support, overworked
I have been with the trust over 4 years now and my view is that there are much better places to work. Managerial support is very inconsistent and often setting unrealistic targets. Consultations are frequent and end up affecting patient care. Having said that, some of the jobs i have done within the trust have been very satisfying and the colleagues have been very supportive. No wonder why the trust struggles to recruit.
Supportive colleagues, satisfying job.
Unrealistic goals set by management. HR is horrendous
Love working here!. Flexible working pattern allowing better work life balance. Supportive team members and opportunities to develop. Since starting I have been promoted and given the opportunity to change things.
No air conditioning
Winchester place: Good things: interesting work, nice staff/clinicians Not so good things: no car park, no staff room, crampt office, old carpets, wallpaper hanging off walls. High staff turnover. Poor management.
lack of management support
