Mixed Bag
Like most jobs working for this trust has its up and downs. I think you need to be a certain type of person to work for this trust. The benefits are great, good pay, good holiday and pension. The people not so great. I would say management have no clue what they are doing. If you want to get anywhere, the best thing to do would be to brown nose. Not something I am fond of doing myself. It's very political, very gossipy and too many fingers in the pie. Patients I have dealt with personally have been lovely. However, I would say Pathology is a lovely department, with really lovely and friendly staff.

Awful management
The problem within the Trust are coursed by a poor management. Unexperienced people, with no knowledge who's only aim is to tick a boxes and not willing to improve processes. Small team with 3 managers - waist of our money. People have their places even before the interview - the interview is just formality. Managers does not willing to listen the front line staff and support them during the improvement processes. Team meetings - what is that? Staff are not allowed to share their thoughts, views and problems which are experienced because of non-working processes. We have no right to speak up or complain and if we dare to do so HR is not there for us - HR is for the managers. The staff turnover is huge in this Trust. I am feel very sorry for all the patients and tax payers seeing how their money are wasted on band 8 which are doing nothing.

Awful experience
I worked there for just over a year. As a assistant healthcare scientist in the lab. Supervisors were rude, power hungry and would be the cause for most problems. Supervisors wouldn’t work, would treat members of staff like they were children. They would follow you to the toilets to ask where you was going, you weren’t allowed to leave the lab even if there were sufficient staff available. Staff would talk behind your back and management would not listen or help if you raised a problem. Being treated like a child in the work place is not the experience I wanted. Not being able to get a drink or other human rights, are stripped when you enter the environment. Staff turn around is constant as so many people leave the role quickly, some stay forever. These are the ones who cause problems. Not recommended

Tread carefully
The actions of management ruin everything about working here. My actual team were (almost) all, pretty wonderful people. The Band 8s have little accountability as their managers tend to be very busy people with more than one role. They are left unchecked. Favouritism, back stabbing and brown nosing. If you are the current target, it will feel even your breathing and the way you stand is wrong eventually.There are some brilliant managers, but they have to work with some truly awful people. Be careful who you share your concerns with. Occupational Health are great - HR are to be avoided as much as possible. Let your work speak for yourself. Do not indulge in the gossip. Find those colleagues who make you smile. If you find yourself in an uncomfortable 1 on 1, you have the right to say you will only continue with representation, and leave (Also, Please sign up to a Union!)

Worked as a hca. The girls I worked alongside were amazing. We helped each other and we worked so hard to ensure our patients were well looked after and at the same time kept each other going. Management however a joke sometimes making us run 3 clinics at a time and sending people to other sites last minute! Favouritism too on who they chose
