Psychiatric Nursing Assistant in Dawlish
on 3 March 2022
Intense atmosphere, good colleagues

Worked at Langdon Hospital as a support nurse for over 20 years, made some very good friends there but job can be stressful and violent at times. Line managers are very supportive but middle management can be very unsympathetic and cold. Would not recommend.

Open Dialogue Peer Support Worker in Torbay
on 7 February 2022
Corrupt, disorganized, exploitative.

Overworked. Understaffed. Underpaid. Emotional labour not valued or rewarded by Trust. Clinical culture does not allow space for reflective practice. Peer Support Workers used as cheap labour imho. Little room for diversity of opinion outside the biomedical framework. Dissenting voices silenced. Adequate supervision not in place for safe practice, which put health of whole team at risk. Resigned.

Staff Nurse in Acute inpatient
on 28 September 2021
Fast paced environment but well supported

I worked for DPT after graduating in 2001. I spent 13 years in one dept and loved it. Great team and good staff retention. Led by an excellent manager who cared about staff well being. Patients treated with dignity and respect. Only down side was lack of beds and community resources which could lead to longer than necessary stays for some patients. Returned iti work here again in 2018. Bed pressures even worse, staff retention not as good. However overall still a good place to work with very supportive managers and a Director of Nursing who has time to listen to staff whatever their band/grade.
