Senior Physiotherapist in London, Greater London
If joining for a senior role be very careful. Dead end position with very little opportunities to progress unless 5+ years experience or a masters. You are the whipping people who do all the ground work.
Stay in the NHS and at least get paid what you deserve with the same level of training. ESP lead services are superior CATs
Team Leader in London, Greater London
The place to be for personal and professional development
I have previously worked in an NHS hospital trust at both junior and senior levels. I moved over to Connect as I was looking to continue developing as a clinician - something which was pretty much left to me alone before. Now at Connect Health I have developed more in the last year in management, clinical and personal skills in the last year than I did in 3 years before.
You do have to be willing to work to a fast pace but I can assure you that you will not feel like a workhorse. Management has always been available and approachable to discuss ideas and in my case have been very flexible in allowing adjustments to working hours to help with work/life balance.
As long as you are willing to work hard, learn lots and change your practice as you learn to improve then I would recommend working at Connect Health without a doubt.
Manager in Newcastle upon Tyne, Tyne and Wear
Fast paced, progressive and rewarding
Having worked for several big corporates, I joined Connect Health in a similar role and have never enjoyed my job as much.
It’s fast paced, always looking for how we can do things better for our patients and the business.
It doesn’t always go to plan, but that’s ok as there isn’t a blame culture. We learn, improve and go again.
The progression opportunities, especially for clinical staff are tremendous and it’s great to see people progress
Fast and Rewarding Environment
The pace of the work is quick but a lot of that is compared to similar organisations where a common complaint is the slow pace and inefficiencies that can be seen at every turn.
The company and managers are always trying to improve things rather than sitting still. Things may not always go to plan but they aren't afraid to try again rather than leave it alone.
The real difference you can see is the impact everything has on the patients we care for:
- Shorter waiting times
- High quality care
- Wider choice of care options
I have witnessed a significant amount of development and progression for people since I started. Countless people have taken on new exciting roles within their existing teams or stepping up into other services.
It's fantastic to see your colleagues and friends careers really developing knowing that they are doing well and that there will be opportunities for you as well.
