Lots of opportunities for career progression
I love working for DPT. I have been offered plenty of opportunities to progress in my career. Training opportunities have been both in management positions as well as in clinical development. I have had 7 positions across the Trust including both inpatient and community across 3 localities. Torbay is a difficult area to work due to high caseloads, bed pressures and inadequate and absent management. Unfortunately, the poor management in this area casts a shadow over those who are trying to elicit change and improve the quality of services for both its clients and staff. Senior management in secure services are incredibly supportive and they really value all members of staff. They are also ready to pull up their sleeves and get stuck in when needed and you often see them on the wards. Nurses are valued and cared for across the secure directorate. The Practice Education Team are supportive and ready to guide nurses through the opportunities for training and development that the Trust offer and what opportunities are coming up.
The Best Mental Health Trust in the South West
I have worked for DPT for around 18 months having previously worked in Trusts across Somerset, Devon and Plymouth. DPT is without doubt the best organisation I have worked for- I feel valued and supported in my role and feel like I am able to give high standards of care that my patients deserve. The teams I have worked in have been supportive and healthy environments and the management is far better than elsewhere in the region. The HR department are very helpful and the recruitment process couldn't have been easier. Overall, I can't recommend DPT highly enough, whether you're a newly qualified or experienced professional, someone from Devon or relocating from elsewhere in the country, you'll be welcomed with open arms at DPT.
I have just received a formal job offer, I am yet to start working. My interview was fair, it was a good experience to go through, though there were some online technical problems. I received kind, thorough feedback afterwards with reasonable comments and suggestions. Although written confirmation took a little time to arrive, once it came, I was given prompt updates. I feel supported and motivated and am looking forward to starting work with the team.
