Could be very good.

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Every day in the emergency operating theatre is different and the majority of the staff are hard working but there are always a few who want to do as little as necessary and take all the credit for others work. They tend to be the weakest link but bask in the achievements of others.


Security of tenure.


Poor communication from senior management.

Extremely well run hospital

Colchester General is a lovely hospital to work for. One thing I noticed is that no matter what band you are, everyone talks and acknowledges everyone. I only worked a two month contract to assist with the pandemic. I’m actually a registered dental nurse. A couple of departments that really stood out were Theatres and Materials management. Lovely people.


All staff helpful and lovely attitudes


Some facilities need updating and fixinh

Thoroughly rewarding!

Work with a great team, doing a difficult job. Thoroughly rewarding. Amazing support from management, takes a certain type of person to work here though! Not for the faint hearted!

Collleagues lovely- management rubbish

The back up from management is atrocious & because of this the atmosphere in our small office was really bad. Several people have left our department recently because of the way they have been treated by the manager. The management seem to close ranks. The job itself is brilliant just the conditions you have to work under - Victorian springs to mind. Very oppressive. Shame because the people in the office were ok.


Colleglagues were nice

Very mcuh enjoyed my time at the trust.

Outpatients was a fantastic place to work and i was very sad to leave. I spent 5 years as part of a brilliant team of nurses and healthcare assistance, providing excellent standards of care.

A busy environment mainly friendly work colleagues

Midwifery duties on 12.5 hr shift basis. I learned about midwifery in the antenatal, postnatal, triage, antenatal clinic and delivery suite and community. The work place culture was mainly friendly. Hardest part of the job is the pressure and the difficulty to get a break sometimes. The most enjoyable part was caring for women and their families throughout their journey.

Needs improving

The actual work is fine but some of the people working there are horrid . There is a big bullying culture going in especially in a& e . They don't want to try challenge people but instead push people out . The training is poor as no money to send staff on training courses .


Interesting work


Bullying culture
