It is a nice place to work because staff are approachable and willing to assist in any way . The environment is conducive and secured . Care delivered is of good quality and patients in their care are their major priority

My Productive and Enjoyable time working with Central London Community Health Care Trust with District Nursing

A typical day at work would start at 09:00 and end at 17:00pmIt would start with a team of 20 Nurses from 3 teams that is Team 1, Team 2 and Team 4.A day would start with allocation of Patients to the Nurses.I learned teamwork and customer care through physical and telephone conversations both awkward and easy scenarios but you end the up managing them well.The workplace would involved daily allocations of clients to the team members and giving feedback at the end of the shifts by each Nurse after the morning shift and the following day another list of clients based on the priority of the cases.The hardest part would be multitasking the roles such as Triaging referrals for 3 Teams Preparing client treatment care plans and other administration roles on the days such as replenishing stocks in the store and receiving stock on the days when they are due but i would handle that by prioritizing the tasks.The most enjoyable part of the job would be when the tasks are met and the clients are served sufficiently.

Great salary and flexibility, poor management and staff behaviours

This is an overall good organisation to work for. It is quite frustrating that management is risk averse, often uninspiring and tolerating discrimination. There’s systemic issues which will take a long time to resolve.

Not great.

Unsupportive upper management who make decisions without consulting staff or patients. Staff are great but management is aloof...Would not recommend.

Stressful and used as a number

Opportunity for training is behind as you are always short staffed. Management are not understanding and do not listen to personal issues. An unhappy environment for nursing as everyone is a number and everything you have been promised in your interview does not happen.

Enjoyable experience

My colleagues were collaborative and made the environment an enjoyable one. The care manager who I directly report too, was kind with an open door policy. She is a visionary care manager, who encouraged everyone to learn and develop. The psychologist, is accommodative and always ready to support the team. I enjoy the weekly meetings were cases are discussed

Enjoyable and enriching environment.

My role involved working at different sites so met lots of different clients and staff which I enjoyed. I learned how much better life is when you have a job that you enjoy. I was grateful to work with a collaborative, supportive team. The most difficult part of the job was the red tape and box ticking, data input etc but what was the most rewarding for me was observing the progress in the clients.

Nice workplace

Don't have much to say I worked at different sites in CNWL consecutively. I established an ECR service, managed their PICU and then worked in the community

Staffing shortages create very stressful work places , little to retain staff once you have joined . Pay office and HR very slow to respond to issues and pass you round and round until you give up . Stressful & frustrating an organisation which blames rather than learns and has little value for the staff on the ground . Promises a great deal but doesn’t deliver.

Interpreting Service

The interpreting service has now been taken over by private agencies. This was a huge loss for interpreters working with the service. It used to be an efficient and good service provider.
