Nursing Assistant in Dorset
on 3 July 2022
Low pay, long days
Working within the NHS is a job I love, having been here 2 years it's time for me to move on because there is no room for development. Signed up to work here for the pandemic, with a rise in cases it seems its all going backwards and with the NHS removing the covid payments staff will just attend work with covid instead of staying home to protect those who work here. So for me it's time to leave. Many wards have HCA's doing all the work sometimes having 12 patients to support while the nurses just swan about. The overseas juniors / nurses /students don't really get to excel as they are shoved in at the deep end unsupported.Some areas really support their staff others do not.

Different everyday
Fast paced but a good level of job satisfaction. Good level of pay. Friendly colleagues. Able to achieve work/life balance. Would be better if parking was free for staff

If your face fits, you’re fine!
This organisation seems to focus purely on culture so if you’re in a minority group you’ll be protected. If you’re part of the majority and not in a particular clique then it’s a different story! Sad to say that after working hard here for 20 years I’ve had enough and I’m leaving with no new job lined up. Beware if you’re thinking about joining this NHS Trust.
Senior Support Worker in Dorchester, Dorset

You have to be in it for the love NOT the money!
The pay is not enough for anyone living locally and unless you can do insane amounts of overtime ita not worth the stress of being anything below management level! The band 2 & 3’s (support workers) are treated like cheap replacements for nurses and midwives with very little support and the staff turnover & sickness is HIGH! It’s become 10x worse since covid and shifts are so short staffed its dangerous. You’re better off becoming a band 1 /cleaner and still getting the same “living wage” pay for a fraction of the stress and not having to be responsible for the lives of people without a degree qualification! The NHS doesn’t give a toss about it’s employees disabilities or mental health so be prepared to be shunned for disclosing anything like this to management!
Administrator in Dorchester, Dorset

Let down by management
Worked in several areas within the trust over many years. Same theme across the board... too many managers not enough people putting in the work. Particularly bad in the access department. Otherwise a lovely place to work with excellent colleagues, good pay and good holiday. You get to work somewhere where you do feel like you are helping people and are part of a community.
